“I saw the difference that learning music makes on developing children. In addition to learning musicianship, theory, and repertoire, the students’ self-confidence as individuals grows as well. A parent had called me to thank me and said that the discipline and focus picked up from studying music in my class has translated and carried over to his son’s other academic classes at school.”
