ETSO is committed to working with educators and the community to deliver an exciting range of musical experiences to the young people of East Texas because we believe that the power of music enriches and inspires. The National Association for Music Education makes a strong statement about this power:
Music is a natural and important part of young children’s growth and development. Early interaction with music positively affects the quality of all children’s lives. Successful experiences in music help all children bond emotionally and intellectually with others through creative expression in song, rhythmic movement, and listening experiences. Music in early childhood creates a foundation upon which future music learning is built. These experiences should be integrated within the daily routine and play of children. In this way, enduring attitudes regarding the joy of music making and sharing are developed.
