Why it Matters
From happiness, to curiosity, to patience, to pattern recognition, to memory skills, to cultural awareness, to math skills, to overall brain development, to neural activity, music really does matter!
Help your kids remember more (and learn more!) with music.
"Music is joyful and exciting and I like singing with all of my favorite friends and it is fun to play the piano. That is always joyful and exciting too. Music is fun because I get to try new instruments and I get to perform in front of a real audience. It is super duper fun and always joyful."
~ Saskia, 1st Grader
Picking up an instrument can also help your child break out of their social shell too, experts say.
"Music means playing the xulophone. It means singing with Connor. It means use my brain to sing. Music class makes me excited."
~ Sid, 2nd Grader
We live in a world of instant gratification, but real life demands having patience.
"I like playing the recorder because I play guitar and it's fun to know 2 instruments and I like to hear everyone play as a group. Also, my family likes ot hear me practice at home. Music is so fun!"
~ Olivia, 3rd Grader
"Having music class in my lift is great, because I love music. It's something I've been doing since as long as I can remember. It makes me very warm and happy inside. It's a great opportunity for me to have music class and I love it."
