Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, children are affected by physical distancing, quarantines and school closures, which prevented them from playing outside, meeting with their friends, and studying at school. Parents are concerned about their children as they are struggling emotionally and feeling more isolated, bored, and confused.
To give hope, joy, and comfort to our children, we resumed the music class online. On the first day of our music class, we shared how music can bring us happiness and comfort in this time of quarantine. Each student also shared their stories on how they are going through the hard times. Many shared that they are bored and frustrated that they can’t go out and play with their friends, but gratefully they were all safe and well. As the students sing along and danced, they seemed to enjoy and relieve stress. Some of the students even brought their own instruments and played it for other students. It was a time for healing and a time for students to get closer to each other again!
