Music improves school work

Music training does more than sports, theater or dance to improve key academic skills.

That's a quote from no less an august publication than the Wall Street Journal, which recently published an article about music and children and how well they all go together, at least as far as education goes. The main point of the article is that children who participate in music-making activities, like taking formal music lessons, being in the school band, etc. are generally smarter and do better in school than children who don't do the music stuff.

According to the article (and according to me, Mr. Mark) child-development research is showing, time and again, that there's lots more benefits to be had from formal music lessons than just getting better at playing a musical instrument. Although, of course, playing a musical instrument is a wonderful benefit in and of itself. Here's the complete article.

Music is one of the basic human intelligences we all share.

All children are born with this potential for musicality, to participate in musical activities, to enjoy listening to music, to be comfortable making music with others.

You can have a primary role in nurturing the musical growth of your child.

Your role in your child's development is critical, even if you don't think you are musically inclined. Music Together® family music classes are a great, age appropriate way to nurture your child's musical abilities--and they're just plain fun to boot!

Our Music Together classes build on your child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement.

We'll help you provide your child with the basic musical skills needed to enjoy school and social musical activities, and to study an instrument should he or she choose to do so. Most importantly, we'll help you nurture a love of music and music-making within your child that will last a lifetime. (And beyond as your child shares that love with your grandchildren!)
