WHY MUSIC CLASSES?
While programs may use music as a teaching tool, it does not provide all of the benefits that are gained from an actual music class.
Here at Music Makers Education, we believe that music should be one of the fundamental elements in all education systems. Music is universal. It activates the brain and fosters creativity. It gives insight to concepts both simple and abstract. Much can be gained from its aspects that vary from pitch, rhythm, dynamics, ear training, consonance and dissonance, lyricism, and more. Additionally, the encouraging environment supports confidence, creativity, and self-expression, and promotes healthy socialization—which even alone is invaluable for boys and girls.
