Elizabeth R, Mom of drum and guitar students
This school does a great job of teaching through online platforms. The teachers keep my kids engaged as if they were in the same room. We thought we would discontinue after covid, but our lessons were so successful they we just kept it going. And now my two sons are playing music together and writing songs.
The Benefits of Learning a Musical Instrument
Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul.
From intellectual, aural, physical, and emotional senses, there is a wide range of benefits to learning a musical instrument at any stage of life. As many studies have shown, MUSIC is the link to better listening skills and coordination for younger children, understanding abstract or mathematical concepts, and promoting self-confidence throughout childhood and adolescence. Learning and playing a musical instrument also has its benefits for adults by exercising a sharper memory and relieving stress. Most importantly, it should be an enriching and positive experience that is enjoyed when the individual is open and willing to learn.
Our mission is to help students enjoy the step by step process of becoming a musician.
