Benefits of Learning
With all of the things we have packed into our lives, doesn't it seem like
something is still missing but you can't quite figure it out?
This one thing is music! Although we have access to all
kinds of music online at anytime, learning music and listening to it are two
- This one activity of learning an instrument has been proven to have a very
positive effect on all the other things you do throughout your life.
Somewhere along this busy highway of life, many of us, especially
kids, have lost something much needed...slowing things down.
Patience, creativity and the taking time out to think things
through have been replaced with instant access to almost everything.
does come time to where we need patience for important things, we feel frustrated
and we don't know why.
- While many other activities have been great, music will
give your life balance.
Many parents have expressed to us the wonderful results

Music Throughout The Years
If you listen to
music from different decades, you can still understand what they were feeling and experiencing by listening to those songs years later.
The creativity that comes from expressing yourself through
music of both good and bad times is vital for a person to grow. It's
something that will always be there whenever you need it.
- Years ago when we didn't have so many things to focus on, there was a time when learning an instrument was one of the most
anticipated things to look forward to.
Looking back, each decade gave us a reason for new music and
expressing the feeling of the times we lived in.
Big bands in the 40's such as Glenn Miller, Duke
Ellington, Benny Goodman, and Cab Calloway were just as popular and needed as today's musical artists.
Throughout the decades, musicians developed Jazz, Swing, Rock-n-Roll,
Punk, New Wave and more!
The music from the 80's is still enjoyed today, so it's not surprising that it's used in so many movies. Why were the 80's music so much fun? It's because it
reflected a great positive time period!
Years ago, music lessons were given in school as part of the
curriculum and it was fun to find out which instrument you would like to learn!
Slowly however, the school music programs were replaced by
other activities such as Football, Soccer and Field Hockey.
Music, being part of the Arts like dance and ballet were
then taught in homes and small studios. As our world got faster and more things
filled up our time, music lessons got left behind.
That's okay! There's room for music too!
Music is just as important as other activities, if not more because it's beneficial for learning, relaxing and celebrating!
Your Options and Good Practices
If you've never been on Zoom or other online meeting platform, it's
very easy to download the app and we'll be glad to help guide you.
Now that things are starting to open up again, you can let us know
if it would be better to have lessons online or have a teacher to come directly to you!
If you choose to have your lessons at your home, we still suggest that each student wash their
hands before and after the lesson as well.
Your instrument should also be wiped
down as a good habit for normal everyday uses and before
and after each lesson.
To reassure you, our
teachers have always sanitized their hands before and after each lesson, so
we've already been in good habits!
Best Ages To Start Your Instrument...
For in-person lessons, our guidelines have always been at
least 5 years of age for piano lessons and around 8 years old for
If you have a child younger than these ages, there are several reasons why starting younger usually does not work well.
Remember, you want the experience to be great from the start, so give us a call to explain why and we'll help you prepare before they turn the right age.
