    Linda Ball-Rodriguez

    • Hello! My name is Mrs. Rodriquez. I have been with OMA since 2015, before then I taught visual arts for 23 years. I am looking forward to teaching your child visual arts integrated with language arts, storytelling, and cultures from around the world. Multiculturalism is dear to my heart , especially since I am an immigrant myself.!



    Students who learn to play an instrument develop a greater language capacity and a greater ability to learn a new language.

    Research has found that learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas.

    A study published in 2007 revealed that students in elementary schools with superior music education programs scored around 22 percent higher in English and 20 percent higher in math scores on standardized tests.

    Active engagement with music promotes an adaptive auditory system that is crucial for the development of listening skills.

    Learning music promotes craftsmanship, and students learn to want to create quality work instead of mediocre work. This desire can be applied to all subjects of study.

    Music can keep kids interested and engaged in school.

    Students of music can be more emotionally developed, with empathy towards other cultures

    Musical education programs require teamwork. students work together and build collaboration

    It develops insight and creates emotion. Through music, children learn to share their humanism, express thoughts and feelings, and contribute to the infinite and collective spirit we call “life.”
