Music has power. It has the amazing ability to spark compelling outcomes for people suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Different studies have confirmed that our musical memory is retained. It can link a song with special memories of events or relationships. When using music as therapy for patients with Alzheimer's disease, it can shift their mood, stimulate positive interactions, manage stress-induced agitation, and facilitate cognitive function. This power of music therapy happens because rhythmic and other well-rehearsed responses rely on little to no ment.


I'm passionate about music and I want to help you or your children attain their goals and musical aspirations. I teach piano and flute lessons. The only instrument older than the flute is the human voice. This means when you hear the sounds coming from these reedless woodwinds, you're experiencing a form of musical time travel, listening to notes and tones humans have been enjoying for thousands of years. The basic design of flutes allows for both easy learning and tremendous potential. For these reasons, the flute has stood the test of time and continues to be a vital component of many musical compositions.


Seacoast Academy of Music was founded in 2001 by Christine Petrucci. SAM is an engaging and inspiring environment for music instruction to students of all ages and abilities. Originally from Chicago, Jon Rosenthal has been a musician his entire life--or at least since age 4. He began taking piano lessons at that age and studied privately for the next eleven years. The Des Plaines School of Music offers private music lessons for Piano, Guitar, Bass, Violin, Viola, Drums & Voice. The drumbeat is one of the most emotionally invigorating sounds heard in music today as a talented percussionist is responsible for keeping time and providing intricate musical flourishes to any piece of music.


My name is Sarah Strout, I grew up here in Dallas and am very passionate about giving back what I was so lucky to receive. A native of New York's Adirondack Mountains, Joel Perkins is a fifth generation violinist and fiddler of over 28 years. The Des Plaines School of Music offers private music lessons for Piano, Guitar, Bass, Violin, Viola, Drums & Voice. The bass guitar is the underappreciated component of the power trio and other standard band setups. Those looking to grace a stage with an instrument slung around their shoulder typically opt for the standard electric guitar when given a choice.
