Why learn music?

February 15, 2018 § Leave a comment

Learning music prepares an individual for the rigors of school and employment. Studies by top universities have shown that learning music helps children with their reading, writing and math skills. In childhood, neural connections between brain cells form in response to learning and experience. More neural resources are allocated to brain areas associated with greater usage. As the saying goes, “Use it or lose it!” Music is inherently mathematical; the intervals in scales, arrangement of keys and subdivisions of rhythm all follow mathematical principals. Playing violin in orchestra provides an avenue for a child to connect with other musicians and build teamwork, listening skills and friendships. The benefits are countless!

I am grateful to have such wonderful students and so proud of all of them for performing beautifully and euphonically on their first recital!

With less than 6 months of private lessons under her belt, Grace was playing Minuets, Pachelbel’s Canon, and contemporary pieces such as “I See The Light” from the motion picture “Tangled.” What I admire about her is her innate passion and drive to succeed at violin. Below is her performance from the Winter Recital in December 2013.
