Support the development of the whole child through music
As music educators, you have the opportunity to teach your students more than just music. Every student who walks through your door has physical, social, and emotional needs, often beyond what you can see. As incidents in bullying and school violence take center stage, schools are recognizing the need to pay attention to these needs in our students. Social and Emotional Learning—as it’s referred to in many education circles—focuses much-needed attention on the development of these soft skills, including: self-awareness, relationship skills, personal safety, and more.
Now Offering Music-Based SEL Resources
The team at Quaver has been studying this connection—between music and SEL skill development—and has developed curriculum resources that harness the power of music to develop the whole child. The QuaverMusic curriculum now includes many songs and activities directly tied to SEL competencies. And the new QuaverSEL curriculum is designed to empower classroom teachers and counselors with tools to directly address the five core CASEL competencies of self-management, self-awareness, social awareness, responsible decision-making, and relationship skills. We believe that music has a powerful role to play in developing the academic, social, and emotional skills of students across the school campus, both in and out of the music classroom.
