“Music matters because it

fosters relationship, exercises a range of emotions, builds expressive skills including language, sparks learning, and preserves and celebrates cultural heritage and a sense of belonging.

It works across people, activities, and settings, offering a promising, and too often underused, resource for mutual ties and human development.”

 

“No matter our backgrounds

and past stories, every new parent wants a child to feel loved and accepted no matter what. They want them to know that they'll never be alone, never be turned away and want them to have the freedom to discover their own path and potential.”
