Experience the joy of music-making and the benefits of music education.
Music has been shown to increase the brain’s ability focus on a single task.
Music broadens intuitive and cognitive powers that form the basis of skill development in the young, adolescents and adults.
Music has the power to socialize young minds and to increase empathy.
For adult students, music can be a way to keep the brain young, providing unique benefits. It challenges the neurons to refresh the pathways and establish new reflexes. It can awaken old skills learned in youth. It connects us with the joy of living, and the senses. Music is the ideal recreation and vehicle for life-long learning.
Classical training in music draws from a four hundred year tradition of composition, but is not confined to any period or style. The study of the literature of music from a deep pool of knowledge gives the student a wider understanding of art and the human experience.
The study of rhythm, harmony and melody permanently alters the student’s understanding of the world. It greatly enhances the learned ability to effectively communicate ideas and concepts to others. The hand-eye co-ordination and skill development required by playing a musical instrument civilizes and sensitizes children.
