Why Learn Music?

Stretching back to the beginning of recorded history, music plays a vital role in human history. The reason for this is simple -- it’s good for us in more ways than one. In addition to the joy and practical skillset that comes when you develop your talents, our personalized music classes also offer these five life-enhancing advantages:

1.      Social Connection

Often called a “universal language,” music creates bonds between people from all walks of life. No matter the linguistic or cultural differences among a group, knowing how to share a song can break tension, build respect, and create enjoyable experiences with ease. Plus, with so many influences from so many cultures, learning music helps students gain an appreciation for others.

2. Academic Excellence
Often taught in schools, music increases listening skills, reading comprehension, and can even boost memory. All of these are vital parts of succeeding in an academic setting, and creating an inclusive learning experience gives students a distinct advantage in the classroom. The opportunity to learn to play an instrument also serves as an entry point to extracurricular activities that look great on college applications.

3. Mental Health Development
As shown in the increasing popularity of music-based therapies, learning an instrument or vocal techniques can help improve or maintain mental health. Capable of soothing stress and providing focus in an often-chaotic world, our lessons are great for those who want to feel better while channeling their energy into positive skills.

4. Discipline
Like any form of art, music takes commitment and discipline to master. Working alongside our encouraging, experienced music instructors, you or your child can develop patience and determination that translate into every area of life.

5. Self-esteem
Perhaps the most important advantage of studying music, our lessons focus on a positive approach that builds students’ sense of self-confidence. From the simple pleasure of growing your skills to an improved ability to relate to others, there’s no limit to music’s potential to give you a better outlook on like. As Shakespeare said, “If music be the fruit of love, play on.”
