Charles Barr Concerts for Head Start
Texas Winds believes music teaches discipline, problem solving, working with others, and self-expression. As a partner with Head Start, Texas Winds has a unique opportunity to contribute to the early learning environment of preschool children by stimulating their imagination, intellectual curiosity and self-esteem.
