It's All About Kids

  • Kids begin playing the very first day.

It Makes You Smarter!

  • Studies show that playing music helps kids excel in math, reading and verbal skills and score better on math tests than kids without a music education; high school seniors with music experience score higher on the S.A.T.
  • Playing music helps develop coordination, timing and memory.
  • It's Fun In A Group
  • Most recorded and live music is performed in groups (bands, orchestras, jazz trios)
  • Children like being in a group, where they make new friends and learn from each other.
  • Students establish an excellent sense of rhythm in a group.
