Why Music?

Hans Christian Andersen could not have said it better when he penned the famous saying - “Where words fail…music speaks”

Music is healing and transformative. It has the power to dissolve boundaries and bring people together from every corner of the world.

Learning and playing music is fantastic for neurological development. It will fundamentally alter your nervous system for the better, improve your fine motor skills, memory and cognition.
