Music stimulates Learning Research shows that music reduces stress while stimulating happiness, which in turn helps students better concentrate on the task at hand, especially when learning. With this knowledge, Mr. Tommy Durham, Site Director for the Project LEAD program, invested in electronic keyboards for Ripley Elementary School students. Almost twenty years later, these keyboards are still a favorite among students in the after school program. The program team hopes this new music genre will increase student focus and inspire creativity.
