Around the Piano/Character Building Songs for Teens and Preteens is an engaging resource for teachers and team leaders that promotes social, emotional and character development while improving climate through singing, lyric writing and discussion.
By intentionally integrating Music with Character Education in a way that naturally lends itself to integration with other curriculums, ATP can serve to restore music as a regular part of the day for every person in a school community.
Around the Piano works because of the beneficial qualities inherent in Music participation especially in group singing. The physiological and emotional health benefits of group singing as well as the academic benefits of music study have been well documented. Group singing leads to social confidence, builds empathy, enhances creative problem solving skills and leads to joy. With ATP, we use music exploration, discussion, lyric writing and singing to engineer safe places for people to share their ideas about what it means to “do the right thing,” and to foster a true collaborative learning community.
