    Children who study music from an early age can do better at a range of subjects such as maths, science, arts and language. They also learn that there are rewards from hard work, practice, and discipline.

OUR TAKE ON MUSIC

Why students quit band

Over 50% of students quit their musical instrument within the first two years of playing. Here's some tips to overcome that.

Why Music Isn’t Just for “Smart” Kids

Some of those students will quit playing their instruments after a year or two - often because music conflicts with the child's need to place more emphasis on schooling - that school academics comes first.
This belief is dead wrong. In fact, music participation can benefit a struggling kid even MORE than his “average” or “smart” kid counterpart.
