Under the direction of Missy Worden, Woodland Elementary showcased their 18th annual special holiday show, "Mistletoe & Merriment", on Tuesday evening December 19th. The show includes performers from not only Woodland but also Ison Springs Elementary and Heards Ferry Elementary.
The students begin working on their songs for the show as early as October. Ms. Worden carefully chooses each class's show number related to therapeutic goals she is targeting during regular weekly music therapy sessions. Although a fun and festive evening on stage, parents are also able to see gains their kids have made through music therapy in such areas of motor development and planning, vocal participation, socialization, and sequencing abilities.
Since the annual show typically includes a few Sandy Springs area schools, the evening tends to be a reunion and party for all. We love to see the pride in which our families show in celebrating their children's abilities through music therapy.
