Dallas Elementary students have been embracing their musical talent. 

"Creating music enables children to use a multi-sensory approach to learning (listening, seeing, moving and feeling)," said Debra Lewis in an email.

"The use of rhythm instruments and music as learning tools enhances the development of auditory skills, fine motor skills, sense of rhythm, body awareness and coordination of mind and body."
