Come along to see just how much fun you can have
Music learning enhances brain functions. These brain functions are not only better at processing and making music, their enhancements can transfer across to other brain functions that are not related to music!
Developing the Ear
Aural development is essential to be able to play your favourite pop song. Many of our students are often working out songs from YouTube. Ear development is also crucial to language production and acquisition. We can't guarantee they'll listen any better to you... sorry ;-)
Playing a keyboard or piano is great fun. The integrated nature of piano, ie. uses both hands means there are many extra benefits according to the neuroscientists including enhanced thought processing helping at school.
Making it fun!
Learning piano has previously been such a lonely activity. Children learn more effectively in groups and when parents attend the lessons really take off. You'll be amazed at how children are competitive in a nice way with their friends.
