Local Lions Encourage Elementary Students to Pursue Music

Volunteers from the Pleasanton Lions Club recently purchased and installed a Cherub Xylophone and Congas Trio Drums to kick-off a new outdoor music area located in their local playground next to the Pleasanton Public Schools.

The musical playground equipment is intended to encourage elementary students to pursue music. The Pleasanton Lions recognised that playing musical instruments is proven to be helpful in developing healthy minds, bodies and souls. Music creation can aid and enhance logic building skills and improve concentration, commitment and focus. It is hoped that by providing these musical facilities, students will begin composing their own musical scores through improvisation and their own imagination.

Normal music lessons enable students to learn notes, rhythm and other components of music but encouraging young ones to create their own music, freely and outdoors is something very special indeed.
