Congrats to the fantastic Middle School band and choir students that performed at their winter

concert last night at FRMS.  The teacher Mr. Cameron Siegal, and his instructional assistant Mrs.

Kimberly Taylor, have obviously been working very hard with them!  Learning music at a young

age provides so many benefits to students.  By learning to understand beat, rhythm and scales

students are learning how to divide, create fractions and recognize patterns.  It improves short

and long-term memory, it improves physical skills such as coordination, and it cultivates social

skills, as performing in a group requires peer interaction and the ability to work as a team.  Music

teaches discipline, the concept of delayed gratification and it boosts self esteem just to name a

few.  It was great to see so many FRMS students engaged in music!  Thanks again to the staff

and the parents that are supporting them.
