Benefits

Aside from enjoyment, well being, creativity and social development, numerous studies have shown that music study has neurological and cognitive benefits that enhance students’ academic progress. Students who study music often achieve better academically. Furthermore, participation in extra-curricular activities during school years prove desirable for college and university applications.
