The Mrs. Deines' Advisor group and 3 Homecoming Week Contest winning Advisor groups won the opportunity to meet with County Music Artist Jake Gill for a song writing session today - Wednesday, October 7th.
Students will be able to select a topic of interest and together as a class, write a song that will be shared with their school and community. Jake believes that song writing can help stimulate the creative dimensions of a child and provide a healthy emotional environment of expression. “Song writing combines the therapeutic benefits of music with the creative release of bringing our thoughts to words. Today’s child is experiencing more stress and trauma daily, than in times before. To be able to express their thoughts and feelings in a healthy manner, is crucial to a thriving development.”
Jake Gill, a 7-year member of the Country Music Association founded the CMTCI after a series of life changing events in the early spring of 2020. It is his hope that teachers and classrooms all over the world can benefit from this program.
