I am a big believer in music education, and third street elementary has a phenominal music program. Headed by Richard Lawton– it is taught with the emphasis on creating and playing music that I think is key to understanding music as a form of communication. Richard writes a music teaching blog that extends learning beyond the classroom.
Additionally, Third street classes go on a minimuim two field trips a year. Some recent field trips were to: Los Angeles Zoo, California Science Center, LACMA, and Natural History Museum.
