When learning how to play the cello, very little is spoon-fed to you by the instrument. Keyboard and fretted instruments (such as the piano and guitar) are a little easier to learn the basics. Merely putting your finger on the right key or fret allows you to produce the note you want to hear. With the cello, you need to have a teacher guiding you through the early stages to ensure you're learning healthily. A teacher leads to a lifetime of enjoying the instrument. If you have the right teacher, anyone can learn the fundamentals of playing the cello.

The viola is a unique instrument. Not many people start out playing the viola, and so you and your instrument would be one of a kind! The viola is an "in-between" for violin and cello. It varies in size and length for all types of people, tall or short. Violists play violin music, cello music, and viola music. Because of this, you learn how to read many different clefs, giving you the upper hand in future music theory classes. Being able to perform a wide variety of instruments' music also means violists are adept at playing many different genres of music.

We empower military kids by funding sports, arts and other enrichment activities when their parents are deployed overseas with the National Guard or Reserves, or recovering from severe injuries sustained in a post-9/11 overseas mission. National Guard and Reserve families sometimes have trouble accessing support services from military installations. During deployments, these families may lose income when their military member leaves a civilian job to accept a military position overseas. The loss of income and lack of resources can create gaps that are hard on families.

Singing is as natural to humans as it is to songbirds, but many of us tuck our talents away out of shyness or sympathy for those within earshot. Singing is easy and natural, but to sing well takes practice. To sing very well takes practice and knowledge. Some people take singing lessons to make sure they get that solo in church or a part in a spring musical. They want to learn to sing loud. But there are other reasons to take singing lessons, like "to build up self-confidence" or "learn study skills."

We find that most people who try to learn bluegrass-style banjo give up at some point, whether after a few months or a few years. We feel this would happen far less if teachers and instructional materials would help students, from the first lesson, to play pure music with others. It's sad and frustrating to see how many teachers and teaching methods set students up for failure when there are great possibilities for launching musicians. The biggest problem is that they focus primarily on having the student try to memorize note-for-note banjo solos, usually instrumentals.

The correlation between musical training and academic performance has been documented several times, particularly when it comes to math. Learning to drum, however, can also help you in subjects like English, by helping you identify emotional cues, a skill you can use to identify characters' thought processes and motives. According to one study, Music enables students to learn multiplication tables and math formulas more easily T. Mickela as cited in Kelstrom, 1998); rhythm students learn the concept of fractions more easily; students who were taught using rhythm notation scored 100 percent higher on tests of fractions; and a child may use the ability for logical thinking that was developed in music class to solve problems quite unrelated to music (Kelstrom, 1998).
