Youth - Music

Enrich your child's experiences with the sound of music.  Learning an instrument brings out the creative self in an enjoyable way.  Music stimulates life-long learning.  It's been shown that musical training helps develop language and reasoning skills, math and pattern recognition abilities, comprehension, and problem solving techniques.  Your child will flourish with new ways of self expression, imagination, intellectual curiosity, creative thinking, discipline, and self-confidence!
