BERKELY HEIGHTS, NJ - The children at Westminster Nursery School enjoyed their annual Music Week.  "Research shows that children who are actively involved in music develop important life skills too. They do better in reading and math when they start school, are better able to focus and control their bodies, and play better with others and have higher self-esteem," said Director Kathy Sang.  

There were several guest performers during the week. The students learned about the piano from Nick Micchelli, director of music at Westminster, handbells from Carol Cunningham, and the many different flutes from Jenny Cline. Cline is the principal flutist of the Monmouth Symphony Orchestra, piccoloist with the Summit Symphony, and performs regularly with the Plainfield Symphony.

The performances by Cliff Bernzweig, a violinist with the Harrisburg Symphony, and Saughandha Basu, who was going to demonstrate the harmonium, were canceled due to snow.
