Touch the Music

Did you know that playing a musical instrument has a huge impact on your child’s brain development?

Studies have shown that children who play music score higher on standardized tests and perform better in math.

Other positive side-effects are
- increased memory capacity
- enhanced coordination
- boosted team skills
- increased sense of responsibility
- sharpened concentration
- promoting social skills
- fostering self-expression
- teaching discipline
- promoting happiness,
all benefits which will carry over into adult hood.

Where other music programs nurture the important aspects of singing and movement, Touch the Music goes beyond these by offering REAL orchestral instruments to children ages 2 to 10 to touch, feel and play. This unique experience with Touch the Music sets up a foundation of lifelong excitement and enjoyment of music making. Your child will fall in love with playing an instrument before any serious instructions are needed. And when it’s time for regular instrumental lessons in elementary school, your child will already know which instrument to pick and look forward to the beginning of an exciting lifelong musical adventure.
