You may be wondering when we have time to learn all this music. The answer – skills lead us to the music – and performance is the outcome. Come and enjoy the wonderful skills and artistic awareness your child has learned. This is our time to give our gift of music back to you parents and the community.
Did you know that exercise improves your learning? Regular physical exercise increases the level a brain chemical known as growth factor. This chemical helps make new brain cells and establishes new connections between brain cells to help us learn. Physical activity helps us improve our capacity to learn by enhancing our attention and concentration skills.
