Parents' Choice Award winner teaching through music

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Children were learning through the sounds of music at the Jonesboro Public Library Monday afternoon.

Parents' Choice Award winner, Leonardo, pulled out an arsenal of instruments to teach kids through music and entertainment. He's been performing for children for ten years and said having fun is the best teaching tool you can use.

"It gives them another form to learn the basics," said Leonardo. "I think through music it ingrains in their head in a communal atmosphere and it's sort of a repetitive motion. They're learning things, but they're having fun at the same time. They don't know they're learning, which is the secret to success." 

Around 30 parents and children attended Monday's musical event.
