Our music teachers are adept at teaching children and adults, so these music classes are ideal for anyone at any stage of their musical journey.
Different studies have proven how learning a musical instrument can help us both mentally and academically at any age! Below are a number of great reasons to learn music:
Music relieves stress and improves confidence
Music has been proven to be a stress relieving tool that enhances concentration. Every new note learnt is also a personal achievement and will improve confidence.
Learning music results in higher levels of executive control
Several of the studies reviewed in a 2011 paper by Finnish music and education researcher Riia Milovanov and her colleagues, showed that mastery of more than one language as well as mastery of music involves higher levels of executive control. Execute control are mechanisms responsible attention shifts, working memory, reasoning, and switching between tasks. Moreover, several studies have shown that both bilingualism and musical training appear to protect people against the onset of dementia and other cognitive decline in later life.
Music encourages creativity
Music encourages children to express themselves creatively.
Musical training correlates with better language-learning skills and maths skills
Some studies have showed that musical training correlates with better language-learning skills and maths skills. Learners with a musical background were found to be better at pronouncing the sounds of a second language and at perceiving the relevant contrasts between sounds in that new language.
