    If music can solve the savage beast, can it do the same to a few hundred rowdy kids?

    It did last Thursday at Taylorsville Elementary School. Members of the school’s chorus and percussion ensemble entertained the study body, who thoroughly enjoyed the sounds of their classmates and a few guests.

    TES Music Teacher Erin Kelley teaches children from Kindergarten through fifth grade, but also spends extra time with the ensemble and chorus who meet before and after school each week for practice.
