Music Changes Everything

Music touches the human spirit, it heals and allows the heart to express itself in ways that transcend words. Learning to play an instrument or to train one’s voice develops essential character qualities. Patience, perseverance, and discipline are developed in practice, problem-solving skills and teamwork are cultivated in ensembles, courage, grit, and confidence are gained on the stage. These skills, developed through music, will help children excel in school and throughout their lives.
