Eisenreich receives Education Music Award

Cassandra Eisenreich, a Slippery Rock University music instructor, received the Robby D. Gunstream Education Music Award and $1,000 from The College Music Society Fund for her "Music in Early Childhood Community Engagement Initiative."

The initiative teams Eisenreich with SRU music majors to provide weekly instruction to area preschoolers, leading the children in music exploration through sing-alongs, music and movement experiences among other activities. Music education promotes language development, attention span and coordination.
