5. RESEARCH SHOWS THE
DIFFERENCE THAT MUSIC LESSONS MAKE IN A CHILD'S LIFE: Well-documented
studies from numerous universities and experts in the field of child
development show without a doubt that children who take regular music
lessons from an early age simply develop cognitively, physically,
linguistically, emotionally, socially, and musically more consistently,
more fully, more completely than those children who are not afforded
the opportunity to do so.
6. ONE-STOP SHOP: We offer all major instruments (including voice,
piano, guitar, drums, violin, kindermusic, band instruments and more).
Our guidelines, developed over years in the business, contain
recommended ages to begin lessons on the various instruments. Because
several instruments and teachers are available, siblings can take
different music classes or private lessons at the same time in
different rooms with different teachers ~ making our studio very
convenient for moms & dads & caregivers.
7. PAST SUCCESS OFOUR PROGRAM: Our students have gone on to achieve
amazing things, including performing on national television, national
radio, and for Garrison Keillor's "Prarie Home Companion" &
Minnesota Twins. While many students have gone on to professional
careers in music, all have learned a lifelong love of music.
