Music and Kids - The Smart Choice!
It is widely known and accepted in the education community that music stimulates the brain and provides a basis for developing language skills, listening skills and overall creativity. In fact, research shows that children who play an instrument excel academically and score higher in all subjects on standardized tests.

The music education industry has known for years that students who play a musical instrument generally rank at the top of their class in all areas of education. Recent studies prove that the study of music develops the mind and enables the student to reach a higher level of awareness, understanding and creativity. Children do better in all aspects of life when subjected to music studies early on.

By giving your child the opportunity to play a musical instrument, you are providing for self-expression, creativity and achievement. Artistic achievement and excellence are cultivated through each child’s personal growth and their mastery of the music discipline. Music education combines the use of the left brain (logical and analytical) and the right brain (intuitive and creative) simultaneously. Because of the combined usage of the left and right brain, studies have shown that music participation enhances:
