Why Study Art & Music!

“Several studies by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, which is based at Brown University, explored the effects of art and music education on young children’s learning. These studies support the theory that music instruction can help build intellectual and emotional skills, facilitate children’s learning and strengthen other academic areas, such as reading and math.

“The conclusions of these Brown University studies are consistent with other research on music and its effect on child development. One study shows that when three and four-year-old children were given simple piano lessons over a six-month period, they performed 34% better than other children in IQ tests.

“In an interview, one of the researchers from the University of California said: “Music training jump starts certain inherent patterns in parts of the brain responsible for spatial-temporal reasoning.” Computer lessons, on the other hand, do not force children to think ahead or visualize, as they must when playing a piece of music. Music is physical. Music can be described as a sport. Learning to sing and keep rhythm develops coordination. The air and wind power necessary to blow a flute, trumpet or saxophone promotes a healthy body. Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.
