“Music is the universal language of mankind’’ -H.W. Longfellow
Music education greatly enhances students' understanding and achievement in non-musical subjects. At DIS , we understand that the earlier a child comes to grip with music, the more the brain growth will be influenced. We understand that children’s behavioural patterns regarding cooperation, collaboration, and group effort skills improve through musical exposure, effectively done through rhythmic activities. It sets them up for life. Exposing young children to a variety of instruments, choral arrangements, and styles of music enhances their educational experience and fosters their academic, social, and emotional growth. At DIS Music is seen as a vehicle to total learning processes. Specifically, it displays how music is used to help children understand the concepts of listening to and following directions. Music can help teach the concepts in almost any culture. Music encourages self-expression and creativity in young children.
