He emphasizes how listening to the music of Mozart or Bach can improve their concentration for reading, studying, and creative work. The children are invited to send their artistic impressions to Wayne after the program.
Music includes “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Variations” and “Turkish March” by Mozart.
Wayne’s 5 CD recording of all the Mozart Sonatas are in thousands of public school classrooms nationwide.
