Your investment in a musical instrument for your child will reward both of you for a lifetime. Independent studies conducted by renowned educators throughout the country have shown that children involved in musical programs perform significant­ly better in math, English, and social studies, and exhibit more desirable behavior than children who have not participated in musical programs.

“Students with coursework/experience in music performance and music application scored higher on the SAT.”

“The musician is constantly adjusting decisions on tempo, tone, style, rhythm, phrasing, and feeling—training the brain to become incredibly good at organizing and conducting numerous activities at once. Dedicated practice of this orchestration can have a great payoff for lifelong attention skills, intelligence, and an ability for self-knowledge and expression.”

“Studying music encourages self-discipline and diligence, traits that carry over into intellectual pursuits and that lead to effective study and work habits. An association of music and math has, in fact, long been noted. Creating and performing music promotes self-expression and provides self-gratification while giving pleasure to others.”

“A research team exploring the link between music and intelligence reported that music training is far superior to computer instruction in dramatically enhancing children’s abstract reasoning skills, the skills necessary for learning math and science.”
