Why play a musical instrument?

Playing a musical instrument is fun and can help develop learning skills. Music tuition can teach your child: 

  • to read music
  • improved motor skills through co-ordination
  • improved social skills by being part of a group
  • self-confidence, patience, discipline and commitment

Studies have shown that children who learn to play a musical instrument show significant growth and development in other areas of learning.
