Music lessons provide an avenue for students to develop skills that will support them musically and academically.  It is widely known that music education positively affects language development, increases IQ, develops spatial-temporal skills, and improves test scores overall.  Learning a musical instrument also encourages character development, improves students’ abilities to focus, and builds self-esteem. The decision to study a musical instrument is an exciting time in a child’s life – it is a new adventure, rich with rewards.
