A. Brookside School's Field Trip To Soundwaves Academy Recording Studio Provides Learning and Laughter to All
On February 24th and 25th, over 80 students from Brookside Place Elementary School in Cranford attended a field trip to Soundwaves Academy Recording Studio for a morning of musical education. The children were treated to a morning filled with learning and fun, while having hands on experience in all facets of music and recording technology.
Students were split into small groups, and each group took turns experiencing different aspects of music and sound. In one room, students learned about the electric guitar and the vast amount of sounds it creates. The children then learned about how drums make different sounds, and their role in music. Having the chance to sit behind a real drum set and play their hearts out proved to be the highlight of the day for many students. The students also had the chance to take a tour of the recording studio's control room. Once inside, each child took turns in the vocal booth putting on a pair of headphones and recorded their own voice, to then witness how the different studio effects can transform their voices into ways never imagined. This proved to be the source of not only plenty of learning, but a lot of laughs as well. Students even got a tour of how a professional lighting rig works, and how sound can trigger elaborate light shows.
The trip ended with a special performance by the acclaimed band “The Ugly Club,” which yet again provided a great demonstration of how sound works and how all of the topics learned can come together. From the question and answer session that followed, it was clear that the students were both inspired and engaged in the topics that were taught to them. Everyone in attendance certainly seemed eager to learn even more, proving that education can certainly be a very rewarding and fun experience when presented in such a way.

A. Music and Its Affect on Children
Children who are exposed to weekly music lessons, rehearsals, or general music classes reap many benefits. Music is an obvious outlet for self-expression and creativity.
Beyond providing an opportunity to sing and dance, rese musical education provides so much more. Music develops self-discipline. Organizational skills increase and the child learns what it takes to be “good” at something.
Ensemble experience also builds teamwork. Band members or choristers learn the importance of being a reliable member of a group and the importance of being a team player and not necessarily always “the star.” Participation in music ensembles also promotes responsibility.
Learning to read music or play a musical instrument develops higher thinking skills. Music reading uses the same portion of the brain that’s used in mathematical thinking.
