Holiday concerts are an exciting time at any school.
April Tamulen, music teacher at Kimes School in Streator, explains the Kimes students “love music, love to sing and especially love to show their families what they have been working on.” Singing is a great activity for many reasons.
“Studies show that people who sing have healthier heart and lungs, are happier, have better balance, live longer, have better posture and look younger!” Tamulen said.
Students at Kimes are enjoying the benefits of singing. Many leave music class feeling uplifted and excited. Also, during music class, “the students will learn different methods of breathing, posture, singing in a group and also memorization,” Tamulen said. And most exciting of all: first-graders have written their own lyrics!
The students rehearsed over an eight-week period for the holiday concerts. We hope you can attend and enjoy some holiday spirit.
For Kimes, the performances are Thursday, Dec. 14. Quad 1 is at 10 a.m., Quad 2 at 1 p.m. and Quad 3 at 2 p.m. More information is in the newsletter sent home with students.
