Instrumental

Music education is of great benefit to your child’s educational development.  As students participate in music classes, scientific studies have shown positive associations between music education and increased abilities in linguistic, mathematical, and spatial domains in children.  Those who receive keyboard instruction for example, demonstrate significantly better performance on vocabulary and verbal sequencing than students who do not receive keyboard instruction.  All courses are taught by college degreed professional Teacher/Musicians.
