I remember my music classes in elementary school. We would walk to another part of the school where it was decorated with the most fun and interesting creative projects. It was one of my favorite parts of the day because we got to walk around the whole school to get to music class. Meaning we could find our friends in other classes by peeking our heads in classes along the way.
Even though that was the avenue to get to music class, once we got there it was usually really fun. There were times where it was frustrating too, because I didn't fully get the recorder song we were playing that day. However, I do remember our teacher being awesome. She was always fun and energetic about the music she picked for us. Her holiday themed classroom walls were so fun to look at!
