While we know that our students tend to become happier children and have better relationships, music lessons also improve their ability to learn everything.

Studies abound on these benefits; here is just a sampling:

  1. Children who study music tend to have larger vocabularies and more advanced reading skills than their peers who do not participate in music lessons.[1]
  2. Children with learning disabilities or dyslexia who tend to lose focus with more noise could benefit greatly from music lessons.[2]
  3. Music programs are constantly in danger of being cut from shrinking school budgets even though they’re proven to improve academics.[3]
  4. Children who study a musical instrument are more likely to excel in all of their studies, work better in teams, have enhanced critical thinking skills, stay in school, and pursue further education.[4]
  5. In the past, secondary students who participated in a music group at school reported the lowest lifetime and current use of all substances (tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drugs).[5]
  6. Schools with music programs have an estimated 90.2% graduation rate and 93.9% attendance rate compared to schools without music education, which average 72.9% graduation and 84.9% attendance.[6]
  7. Regardless of socioeconomic status or school district, students (3rd graders) who participate in high-quality music programs score higher on reading and spelling tests.[7]
  8. A Stanford study shows that music engages areas of the brain which are involved with paying attention, making predictions and updating events in our memory.[8]
  9. Much like expert technical skills, mastery in arts and humanities is closely correlated to a greater understanding of language components.[9]
  10. Young children who take music lessons show different brain development and improved memory over the course of a year, compared to children who do not receive musical training.[10]
  11. Schools that have music programs have an attendance rate of 93.3% compared to 84.9% in schools without music programs.[11]

What Our Clients Say

We love you! Great teachers and my kids have had so many great experiences for over 6 years!

Hillarie Morris

(Our teacher) is amazing! His character as a person and rapport with the kids is what keeps us going and engaged. I have told so many people about him. He allows for flexibility with our ever changing schedule which is a bonus too. And then Cecilia and her team are fabulous. You do the work for me. As a busy mom like everyone else I don’t have time to think too much and organize but you guys do this for me. You think ahead, you follow up with me when I didn’t have the recital videos. You go the extra mile and its greatly appreciated.
