NASHVILLE RECORDING ARTIST LYNN BRYANT GIVES
THE MUSIC BACK TO NASHVILLE’S KIDS
Learning For Life After School
Program Adds Music To ‘Play List’
recording artist Lynn Bryant is
very passionate when it comes to children and their education. For
that reason Lynn is extending her Learning For Life program for
children at St. Pius X Elementary School in Nashville to include
music. The program, for first through sixth graders, takes place
three days a week after school and beginning on October 19th one
day will be dedicated to teaching the children about music.
“Music is an integral part of
my life,” said Lynn, “And
every child should have the opportunity for music education. Budgets
are preventing kids all over the country from experiencing music
programs, so I thought it was time to do what little I could to
help better the situation and extended the Learning for Life program
to include music.”
the program, Bryant solicited the assistance of John Saenz, St.
Pius X’s principal. He possesses a Masters in Music and Performance
and was the obvious choice to lead the program and to instruct the
"I believe the Learning for
Life Music Program is vital to helping these children realize
their gifts and to draw out their individual talent. Through this
amazing after school music program students will be enticed to aspire
to become more than they thought possible and will help empower
them to go after their dreams,” says Saenz.
Learning For Life program is hands-on as Lynn believes that when
the kids are interactive with their teacher there is a better chance
for understanding what they are being taught. In keeping with that
idea Lynn has scheduled industry professionals to come in and speak
to the children. They will be given voice lessons, performance coaching,
and tips on how to write a song. Lynn went as far as to schedule
a hip-hop Christian artist to speak to the children about using
positive messages in music.
“I am truly excited about this
program because it will not only enhance the children’s education
but will also get them "in touch" with themselves in a
really fun and
meaningful way through music,” says Lynn.
