Learning music allows the student to discover a hobby that promotes relaxation, imagination and creativity. Musical studies help develop analytical skills, dexterity, coordination, concentration, active listening, problem solving and perseverance.

In toddlers, music is innate and they discern music more easily than language. In children, music is a means of creative expression which increases confidence. Students can proudly share their acquired talents at concerts, at home and in the community. Students who pursue their musical studies may find casual jobs performing for special occasions, church services, ballet studios, accompanying musicians, teaching, etc.

Several research studies emphasize the intellectual, emotional and therapeutic benefit of music for all ages. See the section entitled 'interesting links.’

In a world of electronic games, instant rewards and attention deficit problems, learning music is a challenge that leads to unimaginable reward. Individual instruction also allows the student to benefit from a mentoring relationship.
