7 Musical Activities to Keep You Motivated in 2021

It’s a new year! Time for fresh beginnings, new resolutions, and new motivations!

So, we were thinking:

Seven days a week means seven opportunities for music, dancing, stories, and other fun to be had!

Breath in….Breath out. What better way to start the week off than with breathing exercises to help you relax and de-stress. Taking deep breaths sends a message to your brain to calm down, and it is one of the best ways to alleviate stress. Check out ETM Music Teacher Brian Wright’s guided breathing exercise to get started.

Sundays are for winding down and relaxing. Sit down with a nice warm cup of tea or coffee, grab your favorite book, and spend the morning reading with your family. Better yet! One of our fabulous ETM music teachers can read to you!
