Mission Statement Martha Highfill offers education enrichment through music and rhythm activities. These interactive games and play benefit participants by developing focus and attentiveness while reducing distractibility and impulsivity. Through group play, participants will cultivate social interactive skills and regard for others while reducing aggression. We will become a more unified community one beat at a time.
