is a w: education
NO ACADEMIC PROGRAM IS COMPLETE WITHOUT A
SOUND CLASS TO MASTER MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES
THROUGH SKILLFUL LISTENING. MUSIC CAN THEN
BE TREATED AS A SPECIALIZED FIELD OF STUDY
THAT ENHANCES CRITICAL AND CREATIVE THINKING
AND PROVIDES NUMEROUS OPPORTUNITIES FOR
OMNI-DISIPLINARY ENGAGEMENT: RESONANCE!

THE SOLAR SYSTEM a video
(audio clip excerpt from The Solar System: It’s Origin and Structure)
Budget cuts in education have had a negative impact in the ability of our public school systems to provide content tools for teachers and their students. To help with this, iSAW has been partnering with artists to develop educational videos that meet curriculum standards and is now seeking a partnership with local businesses and private individuals to help sponsor distribution of these materials at no cost to the schools. One example is The Solar System: Its Origin and Structure, in partnership with South Florida composer and educator Peter Lampasona. Public school’s science departments from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties have examined and hailed this video and communicated their interest to place a total of 500 copies.
If you as an individual, or your company is interested in partnering with iSAW in this important project, please write us an email to info(at)isaw(dot)info or feel free to give us a call at 305 981 0600.
