The importance of music education cannot be overemphasized. Research has demonstrated that music education expedites learning in other academic subjects and boosts students’ abilities useful in everyday life. Studies show that playing an instrument can improve reading and comprehension skills, math skills, language skills and IQ.
Children will benefit from small class-sizes and professional instruction. Currently violin and piano classes are offered, with future plans to add voice instruction.
