Learning to make music


BRADLEY — Bradley Nickles, 9, gives the drums a workout during Tuesday’s Energy Express events at Bradley Elementary School.  Energy Express hosted the School of Harmony and their new Music Mobile to raise awareness of the benefit of music in education. Each child had the chance to walk through the Music Mobile and explore various instruments. Energy Express is a six-week summer reading and nutrition program, designed to provide learning opportunities and nutrition during the summer months when children from low-income areas are most at risk for falling into the “summer slide.”
