Research studies from Canada, the U.S., the U.K. and around the world have proven what we know from anecdotal experience – music makes kids smarter.
The more kids play and perform, the more they are able to absorb the myriad of benefits, including transferable skills like self-confidence, focus, collaboration, leadership, time management, organization and more; more likely to get good grades, be on the honour roll, get accepted to university, be offered scholarships; be more well-rounded and attractive to employers both now and in the future.
