Singing Better Grades

Chorus It may have something to do with the new TV shoe “Glee,” but a recent study by Chorus America shows that members of a school singing group do better in school and have better social skills. According to the survey, 70 percent of choral parents say their child has greater self control and discipline as well as improved memory. Meanwhile, 9 out of 10 teachers add that chorus can help at-risk students stay in school and keep them engaged. The study was paid for by the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation, The James Irvine Foundation, The McKnight Foundation and The National Endowment for the Arts.
