AN ENRICHED LIFE FOR YOUR CHILD THROUGH MUSIC

Just listening to music is fun, and yet it’s even more fun to create.

MUSIC IS CREATIVE AND DEVELOPS THE MIND

All children naturally want to create something that is all their very own. When your child plays a musical instrument, he will be creating something that reflects his individual personality and style.

This creativity will also strengthen independent thinking in many areas besides music. National research proves that students in school music programs average higher grades in all subjects and develop faster academically than other students.

THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF THE PARENT

Your child’s success in learning to play an instrument depends a lot on you.

Getting involved is vital to your child’s attitude and progress. Encourage him/her to play for you every day. Be generous with enthusiastic praise. Offer your support when he/she becomes discouraged. Above all, participate – meet the music teacher and attend concerts and recitals.

Regardless of your own musical background, you will derive great satisfaction and enjoyment from following your child’s progress.
