Why Music?

Music has the power to engage, relax, and energize us… and has also been shown to make children smarter. In studies conducted by early childhood specialists, preschoolers who received regular music lessons over several months showed marked advantages over their playmates who did not. Children dramatically improved their abilities to work mazes, copy patterns of color, and draw geometric figures. These skills reflect spatial intelligence, the foundation for more complex types of reasoning (such as those used in math and science).

Music has been found to stimulate every area of the developing brain, and similar studies with youngsters have linked early musical exposure to superior motor skills and even social abilities. Although the ability to learn continues throughout life, hands-on participation in music between the ages of three and ten seems to train the brain for higher thinking, and children who miss out on the fun of playing music may also miss some critical developmental opportunities.

Essentially, music provides a healthy, natural and invaluable opportunity for individual expression while encouraging the development of the whole child, enhancing cognitive, social, physical, and emotional skills.
