They do more than just bring music into schools. All week long we've been celebrating the hard work all teachers do.

Music teachers, from band to choir to orchestra integrate learning from all subjects into their classrooms. 

According to the National Association for Music Education, music education helps students improve their reasoning and language skills, memorization, increase coordination and learn to stay engaged.

We caught up with the music education department within the Sweet Home School District to talk about how music benefits their students.
