Science and Song

So today I had the most enjoyable morning...I spent time with a fantastic group of teachers today who are looking at new ways to engage students. One of the things they wanted more resources on was about how to use music in the classroom. I have brainstormed a list of resources (which I found so much fun to compile) that I will share with them but also wanted to share more broadly. Do you have things you would add? Please let me know as I encourage music in all parts of our life.

Anyone who also wants to contribute academic references about why music is so important or personal narratives...please do so...

As I write this I'm listening to a Mr Parr's Periodic Table his Physical Science Playlist and I'm feeling like dancing around my office!
