Many parents view music as a hobby or an extracurricular activity.
Correct music study is much more than that.
It will help the student develop a well-rounded personality and a balanced approach to life, studies, relationships and career.
With the right teacher and an effective teaching system, music is a discipline that develops positive skills and habits for a life.
A good work ethic, a positive attitude towards responsibility, and a “can do” mindset are but a few traits that our students acquire.
Patience, perseverance, focus and learning to learn from failure are some of the other life-skills we help students develop.
Most importantly, music helps shape a sense of well-being, balance, and boosts self-esteem.
A good music teacher in the life of a teenager can be a role model and a mentor.
Someone who helps them carve out a strong sense of identity and purpose.
Those teens who have a good music mentor are less prone to peer-pressure, depression and addictive behaviours.
Music is ideal for introverts, because it gives them a creative outlet and something meaningful to identify with.
Music is ideal for extroverts, because it gives them social opportunities and a talent they can be proud of.
Music also helps both introverts and extroverts balance out their weaker sides.
Introverts learn to master stage-fright, public performances, and get to explore leadership in social settings with other musicians.
Extroverts learn to withdraw within and explore and communicate their innermost emotions through creative expression.
