Why Music Lessons?

Albert Einstein said “If I were not a physicist, I would be a musician.  I often think in music.  I live my daydreams in music, I see my life in terms of music.”

In this and other quotes, Einstein reveals that “musical thought” led him to his discovery of relativity.  He recognized that the skills he developed learning to play a musical instrument helped him to visualize complex concepts.

Studying music makes us smarter.  Although research has shown that even listening to music affects human intelligence, the strongest effects of music are to be found from active participation in music making.
