MySchoolROCKS Interviewed by CFRB host Dave Trafford

MySchoolROCKS founders Anthony Kolozetti and Cliff Callaway were thrilled to be live on the air at NewsTalk 1010 The Weekend Show with Dave Trafford.  Cliff and Anthony touched upon the key elements of the MySchoolROCKS program and how it connects with the timely subject of  youth mental health.  


"Young people will not only love our studio when they come in, they will learn new things about their creative selves...its about being in the moment, playing along with popular songs and truly having a musical experience".

Why does MySchoolROCKS begin each Carousel Session with mindfulness exercises?

"Music sends signals to the brain to aid in the expression of emotions, manage stress, enhance memory, and improve communication. Once we are aware of how music affects us, we can start to intentionally select it to better support our mental well-being and self-care".   In addition to these cognitive connections, the positive vibe generated by music can energize the tone of your classroom and school!
