Dr. Jewett is entering his third year at LQHS with hope for the future! The past several months have been challenging for everyone, but the students in the Blackhawk Brigade have exceeded expectations. When we are all able to come back together for rehearsal and performance, we will have the largest ensembles since Dr. Jewett arrived.
Playing a musical instrument engages practically every area of the brain at once, especially the visual, auditory, and motor cortices. As with any other workout, disciplined, structured practice playing music strengthens those brain functions allowing us to apply that strength to other activities.
