Hi Temple Israel!
My name is Jared Erlinger, and I'm very excited about the upcoming partnership between my school, STL Rock School, and Temple Israel! My school's philosophy is that by playing music that kids enjoy, it creates more incentive for the students to practice and grow! If you're like me, you took classical piano lessons as a kid. I remember dreading going to lessons not because I didn't enjoy music, but because I didn't enjoy what I was playing. And there's absolutely no reason for this to be the case! Music does wonders for the mind, body and soul. Students who learn music improve memory & cognition, reduces stress, and improves one's mood. It is one of the few activities that will help your child's left and right side of the brain! All parents want this from their kids, but most don't want to deal with the extra stress of nagging their kids to practice. That's why we've created our unique band program that develops teamwork and confidence, and inspires students to want to learn without mom or dad getting on them!
I'm so very happy to be able to bring our school's music programs to Temple Israel. Rabbi Amy and I have been playing around with this idea for a while, and I think it's a great way for our school to connect with more students while making it easy on you, the parents, since it's so convenient! We have two fabulous instructors who will be leading the charge over at TI. Adam Beck has been with the school for over 8 years, and has lots of experience running similar programs at Epstein & Kadimah. Hannah has been a part of the school for over 4 years, and is our child whisperer!
