A Case for the Place of Music in the Outdoor Education Program: Part II.
Taproot, v13 n2 p3-7 Fall-Win 2001
The inclusion of music in outdoor educational programs exposes students to a form of communication outside verbal language, develops intrapersonal and interpersonal skills, and improves academic performance in other areas. Through music, one can reconnect with nature, appreciate other cultures, and improve listening skills. Including music in teacher education curricula helps teachers employ music as a mode of learning. (TD)
