Music Lessons Enrich Children's Lives

A quality music education has far reaching impact on student’s lives. The act of mastering the instrument, learning to hear tonal organization, integrating multiple forms of learning, all have positive effects on the brain. Many studies have shown studying music develops connections in the brain that increase learning capacity and ward off the effects of aging later in life. Problem solving, breaking the complexities of music into small and easily manageable portions, enhances skills that serve us in all capacities. Students with successful high school music careers have a significant advantage when it’s time to submit college applications, their supplemental arts application sets them apart and demonstrates their ability to accomplish their goals—relied on heavily by college admissions. The study of music is a never ending journey which enriches student’s lives far beyond their ability to perform.
