Hi, very interesting topic here. I actually need some feedback on a problemI have. My son(9 yrs) just started at a new school and has a teacher who plays current popular songs while the kids are working on math and language assignments. I don't have a problem witn proper use of appropiate music in the classroom, but it seems to me it would be rather distracting for a 9 year old to concentrate on the task at hand while having a pop song playing in the background. My son is easily distracted and I'm worried this new environment would be detrimental to his learning. process. I believe this teacher has heard about music in the classroom but doesn't fully understand how to use it as a learning tool. Any feedback would be appreciated and enlightening.
