LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - A recent study found that music actually trains the brain for higher forms of thinking.
Millions of children in schools enjoy music each day, such as singing, playing an instrument, or even dancing in the school musical.
Jazz Musician Antonio Hart's mission is to share more than music.
"I remember the first note I played on the horn, I was just like wow this is it," said Hart.
And since grade school, musician extraordinaire Antonio Hart has wanted to wow and inspire those just like him.
"The reason I started playing music was because of situations like this. I saw a band come to my elementary school and the guy had a saxophone, I didn't know what that was but I said I want to play that. So that started the bug for me."
And that bug has taken a bite out of the Michigan State College of Music, as they launch their new Jazz Studies in Residence Program.
Shabazz Academy is just one of the schools Hart has visited during his residency and the students of Shabazz just couldn't get enough.
"You'll see some smiles. You'll see them clapping their hands and moving their bodies and some people will just be looking in awe."
A lot of schools now are just interested in testing and then students don't have an outlet for expression, whether it be visual art or the music or when they get a chance to release themselves and enjoy the music which everybody loves, it's just a great experience.
"I've been blessed to travel the world and do things that I thought would never be possible coming from Baltimore. And I want to show the kids that it's possible for them because it happened for me."
Antonio Hart will be teaching at the College of Music and performing for the public while he is in residence.
