Music Philosophy

Music is the soul of life. Some have said that “music makes the world go around!” It plays a critical role in children’s development, integrated into their physical, cognitive, and spiritual development.

Current research has shown that music training changes the brain’s structure, leading to a greater capacity for understanding the complexity of math, reading comprehension and an awareness of beauty in the world.

Musical experience makes a strong positive difference in a child’s life. Music training, practice and performance also give children insight into human emotion and a productive way to interact with people. Parents who give this gift will change a child’s life forever.
