Lessons, Symphonies & Studios 

Education in the arts is more important than ever. Studies have shown a link between arts education and achievement in other subjects.  All forms of art - music, dance, photography - prepare children for success in the workforce as artists and other professions.   In the global economy, creativity is essential. Today's workers need more than just skills and knowledge to be productive and innovative.  The U.S. Secretary of Education agrees.  "To succeed today and in the future, America's children will need to be inventive, resourceful and imaginative." The opportunity to learn about the arts and to perform as artists is an essential part of a well-rounded curriculum and complete education. The arts help students explore realities, relationships and ideas that cannot be conveyed simply in words or numbers.

In addition to the common subjects studied by all students (reading, writing and math), there are new components to consider with successful students called the 4 C's:

  • Critical thinking and problem solving

  • Communication  

  • Collaboration

  • Creativity and innovation
