Developing Skills to the Sound of Music

DANBURY, Conn. -- "Good morning, good morning, good morning to you. Music's beginning, there's so much to do."
Danbury resident Barbara Baker always begins her special education preschool classes singing this song, while strumming it on her guitar. Some of her students sing along, while others smile, clap, or jump up and down.
For 12 years, Baker has been a music therapist in the Danbury public schools. She uses music to help improve students' language, cognitive, motor, behavioral and social abilities.
