About Music

Nearly everyone enjoys music, whether by listening to it, singing, or playing an instrument.
We are provoked by it. We are moved by it. We are inspired by it. We feel connected to it.

Music education is so important and can be a constructive way to express who you are and what you are feeling. Music builds imagination and intellectual curiosity.
