Intellectual benefits of Music studies

  • Music is Mathematics in its rhythmic aspects
  • Music teaches foreign language. Terms in Italian, German and French introduce the child to many ways of saying similar things
  • Music teaches History. The music of each period expresses the time of which it is born
  • Music teaches Geography and understanding of different cultures
  • Physically, Music studies require muscular coordination, agility and fine motor skills development
  • Music is Art because it is human expression
  • Few things teach self-discipline as effectively as daily music practice
  • Musical training cultivates musical taste
  • Music also strengthen family ties. It can be a source of enjoyment, sharing and fun!

It started as nothing but a jumble of

white and black.
Just a big thing in the middle of our
living room that my mother would
make beautiful sounds on.

Soon I was on the bench next to her,
my hands on hers
helping her make the music that
used to fill my days and nights
with peace.

I remember when it was her sitting next
to me, watching my hands create
something beautiful.
I’d never seen her with more pride
than she had in that moment.
