In one school in which I was principal, I played classical music over the intercom to start every day. It created a happy atmosphere and gave every adult and child something to share. It’s easy to build good connections using pieces from Verdi’s operas, especially when a student says “I know that one!”
Integrating music into teaching doesn’t have to be heavy duty, like designing a major curriculum unit. Show your students this video of The Three Tenors having fun with a Verdi piece everyone recognizes.

What a wonderful way to stay my day! Oh, to have been in the audience there in Italy.
It’s more important than ever to find glorious things to enjoy, to us help balance out the negative news in the world. Thank you, Joyce.
