Why Play a Musical Instrument in Elementary School?
Studies show that playing a music instrument:
- Requires students to utilize both sides of the brain simultaneously
- Improves reading and math performance
- Increases SAT scores
- Builds teamwork skills
- Teaches discipline and responsibility
Our Future Musicians curriculum was developed using research based on the way children learn - concrete to abstract
"Music helps students organize the way they think and work, by helping them to develop in other areas, such as math,
language and spatial reasoning." - Gardner
"I would teach music, physics and philosophy; but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music and all the arts are the
keys of learning." - Plato
Music is: Science, Math, Foreign Language, History, Physical Education, but most of all Art.
