Requiring a balance of intellect, emotion and sensory awareness, the study of music develops cooperation, self-esteem, creativity, commitment, discipline and perseverance.

Research shows that music education furthers brain developmentincreases students’ spatial temporal reasoning skills, and strengthens academic performance in core subjects such as reading and mathematics, with young people from challenged socio-economic backgrounds reaping the greatest benefits.

The study of music helps at-risk youth and children with special needs to stay in school, and helps to shape a brighter future for young learners.
