Percussion Play Guest Blog Article for The American Camp Association of New York and New Jersey

Percussion Play was recently invited to write a Guest Blog: Music Around The Camp Fire for the American Camp Association of New York and New Jersey.

Camp leaders across the country have acknowledged the effectiveness of music as a tool for learning. However, research indicates that actively participating in music-making - as opposed to just listening to music - can have a greater impact on a person's emotional and educational development. The article highlights how this is particularly relevant for children with learning differences who may face difficulties in communicating and learning in their daily lives. Engaging in music-making provides a unique opportunity for individuals with learning differences to experiment with cause and effect while also experiencing the joy of creating music, either alone or with others.
