This project seeks to proactively approach identified schools in need and offer workshops addressing some of the most neglected areas of school reform, particularly what a well supported music education program can do for the development and academic enhancement of students. The video you see above shows a sample of 100% student composed and performed original music, using my system from start to finished product. The level is elementary school, and it has been proven successful for as young as third grade students.

In an era in which special interest elitists and billionaires expound upon their wisdom on what makes good school reform, i.e. good students and good schools, it is shocking that there is rare mention of the one subject which can simultaneously address the development and coordination of brain learning processes, and that subject is music.

The system described here has been proven to be very effective in helping students with little or no musical background achieve musical milestones well beyond what they could have themselves envisioned.

There is also a segment later in this video to help fire up students in the school to the idea that they can compose real music no matter what their ability level. Even if they have absolutely no musical background whatsoever, they can have a composing project up and running the very first day.

Overcoming the Risks and Challenges: Although it is not difficult to integrate with other subjects, projects in music class which tie creative and critical thinking skills together can be mistakenly viewed as strange and foreign in a struggling school. This happens in some schools because they are often not recognized in the educational “templates” of today’s system of education. Successful performances and even award winning ratings at local music competitions risk being treated with indifference in some struggling public schools.
The creators of this program have studied with some of the best teachers in the country, picked the brains of many other teachers, and have been employed and immersed in the public education system in various positions such as reading and special education teacher for troubled youth. This also includes having coached successful public school basketball teams.
We are an independent organization that is not vulnerable to the pitfalls and entrenched stereotypical educational practices found in struggling schools. This is because our real and comprehensive public education experience allows us to provide preparation for each school’s staff and negotiate contracts for workshops which guarantee ahead of time positive learning conditions for the children.

A Society Without Heroes Becoming Leaders?

Many heroes and people with prerequisite heroic qualities have existed in our society over the last 100 years. So why is it that we rarely see a transition of those types of people to positions of important leadership? The answer may be that heroes typically make very poor marketers and politicians. The trend seems to have been those who can best act the role that are able to attain these positions, not necessarily those who are the most qualified.

The Need For Child Leadership Courses

What Can Child Leadership Do For You And Your Family?
Our country seems to be in the midst of a great awakening. If you look into it a little closer, it may also be obvious to you there is a tremendous void in leadership training for kids and most of the information out there pretending to help out children is full of false premises.
More harm has been to children by those who overuse the motto “For The Children” than the very problems they pretend to protect children against. So is the solution really that obvious? Is the obvious solution really just to teach children to turn their hearts back to the principles that established this great country of ours? But have you noticed that people who talk about restoring our country to the principles of the Constitution spend most of their time just arguing about their own interpretations on the way they think things should be…rather than actually offering a plan?

Shouldn’t there be a bigger explanation on a solution on how to get everyone together on this?

Childleadership.com has the information available and courses to answer those questions.

 And best of all, it’s people like you that are contributing to it, …and writing it! The beautiful thing about this course is that it’s too big for any ONE person to own and take all of the credit for! So, just follow the childleadership.com page down to the bottom and  purchase a membership in this great organization called The American  Foundation For Child Leadership. NOW IS THE TIME for you to get started to do your part to foster lifelong leadership training in this great country of ours!
