                                                     Did You Know ???

Research shows that music is to the brain as physical exercise is to the human body. Music tones the brain for auditory fitness and allows it to decipher between tone and pitch.

Children who study a musical instrument are more likely to excel in all of their studies, work better in teams, have enhanced critical thinking skills, stay in school, and pursue further education.

Regardless of socioeconomic status or school district, students who participate in high-quality music programs score 22 percent better on English and 20 percent better on Math standardized exams.

Learning and mastering a musical instrument improves the way the brain breaks down and understands human language, making music students more apt to pick up a second language.

( When asked about his theory of relativity ) “It occurred to me by intuition, music was the driving force behind that intuition. My discovery was the result of musical perception.” - Albert Einstein

“Music is a higher revelation than all  wisdom and philosophy.  Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.”

Ludwig van Beethoven

“Music is the soundtrack of your life.”  - Dick Clark 

“Keep boppin’ till you drop.”    Jazz Musician’s Retirement Plan. 

“There are two kinds of music; the good and bad.  I play the good kind.” 
Louie Armstrong  

“All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff” Frank Zappa

You don’t need any brains to listen to music”  Luciano Pavarotti

“Nothing separates the generations more than music.  By the time a child is eight or nine, he has developed a passion for his own music, that is even stronger than his passion for procrastination  and weird clothes.” - Bill Cosby

“life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music.” - Ronald Reagan 

Slow and Clean is always better than Fast and Sloppy” - Paul Shoremount   

"I might not have been President if it hadn't been for school music. Learning improves in school environments where there are comprehensive music programs."
- Bill Clinton
