Give your child a head start in life

The word is out! Music lesson rooms are places where kids celebrate creativity, learn cooperation and discipline, and gain self-esteem through the joy of music-making. It's a fact: kids who make music are more successful in society and life.

Although the hours spent practicing for a weekly music lesson or preparing for a performance are well worth the obvious outcomes -- enjoyment, success, and recognition -- it is now known that this training has far-reaching personal and social benefits. When kids make music, they:

  • develop muscles that improve small motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and poise
  • find creative potential -- they become aware of their capabilities by using imagination and self-expression
  • develop personal and social skills -- build confidence, self-discipline, and responsibility. Kids learn to meet challenges, work for and cooperate with others.
  • prepare for the future -- kids learn time management, goal setting, and become better communicators.

And the earlier a child starts making music, the better.
