CHURUBUSCO — Music is more than a creative outlet for teacher Sue Lough.
Through more than three decades of teaching music to Churubusco Elementary School’s children, the class offers a variety of learning options.

“Sue has turned a music class into a time of learning that lasts long after the bell has rung,” said CES Principal Scott Fudge. “Our students have the chance to learn skills that might unlock a hidden talent or passion inside them.”

In class, students are exposed to learning techniques that include hand motions, movement and rhythm.

Counting beats to keep time and learning how to listen to other voices in the class are skills Lough has “successfully” taught children during her years at CES.
