Is Music Essential to Your Child's Success? The answer will depend on what your goals are for your children.
Countless studies have shown that when music is a part of a child’s life, they excel beyond their counterparts that do not include music in their lives.
Music and learning to play an instrument have been directly linked to higher grades, improved cognitive function, and increased concentration levels. .

I am bias when it comes to piano lessons. I have been playing the piano since I was eight and teaching piano for 32 years! Piano is a foundational instrument, teaching a child to read notes, count, dynamics, etc. that can be used with any other instrument.
Depending on your personality as a parent/teacher, adding elective classes to your homeschool maybe difficult. I was continually fighting myself to make school fun and also get done what was necessary.
There are more academic “have too's” when your children become teens, but don’t remove the arts! Use the two fine arts credits that most states require for graduation to add music or art that interest them.
Because I believe that music and art are so important to improving your child’s life, I created a homeschool resource, History Science, Music Art: A Great Combo for Learning (only $1.97!) to help you add music and art to your child’s homeschool that will completely coincide with the history and or science that they are learning.
These are perfect combinations that will help learning stick by using several senses at once. The more senses a person uses to learn something, the better the chances or remembering and recalling what has been learned.
Enjoying the journey,
