Making music is a social activity and the ability to play an instrument opens doors to meeting other people and making new friends. Being able to express your feelings through music provides an important outlet and a focus. Learning to play an instrument is so much sheer fun, accompanied by a huge sense of achievement.
Some studies suggest that music lessons provide children with important developmental benefits beyond simply the knowledge or skill of playing a musical instrument. Research also proposes that music lessons build self-esteem and improve discipline which in turn may enhance intelligence and academic achievement.
A unique tradition
Parents are expected to sit in on lessons to observe and share their children's development and enjoyment. This will also enable them to offer the child vital assistance with practising at home. The parent must become an active partner in the child's new endeavour with their wholehearted support during the daily practice sessions.
