Music Class as Expressed by a Student

Every now and again, a music teacher is gifted with students’ expressions that tell more about what music classes can do for people than can ever be said by the teacher. 

Here is a paragraph that touches the heart. Like taking music lessons and saying it through the sound of the instrument, writings from the heart have the power to give a true picture of why we teach music and why students choose to take music classes.

“I think of music as my happy place. It motivates me when I’m fired up, and calms me when I’m not in the right headspace. I know that I’m very lucky to have music in my life. It’s the first thing I turn to after a bad day, and I know I’m not alone.

I feel like I’m walking on clouds, when I play music There’s no better feeling than playing a clean melody for the first time, then being able to make it sound pretty and professional. Practice doesn’t make perfect, it makes progress. You’ll learn a lot about yourself when you try your first instrument.”


Age 12

Even more of a gift, Tessa wrote a poem that captures the sentiment of her music class experiences. It is no wonder that music and language pair together so well.


“A faint melody starts an orchestrated tune

The conductor looks to the woodwind section,

At the flute and bassoon


The violin plays a harmony, 

A bow in the player’s clutch

Then a horn plays a theme, in a light, soft touch


The conductor is like the narrator,

They are precise and controlled

Every instrument is a character to a story that is told


Music is the language,

Where I find peace, love, and hope

Music helps me hold my head high, I need music to cope


Music helps me learn,

Music helps me thrive

Learning music helps me grow, I need music to survive!”


-Tessa, Age 12
