    WHY
    Extensive studies have proven that anyone who plays a musical instrument excels in Math, Science, and Social Studies not to mention the Leadership, Teamwork and Social benefits. The art of Music is one of Gods Great Gifts to all of us.  Just listening to music is a joy however, playing music live is a much deeper positive experience.
