Why take lessons in a professional setting instead of in home lessons? Students taking classes in a professional environment are less distracted by telephones, cell phones, tv's, siblings, dogs barking, people walking in and out of the room. Less distraction then leads to better learning of the musical skills that are being worked on. Teachers too are less distracted in a professional education setting and can then deliver a better class and lesson for you or your child. Aprofessional setting is a win-win for everyone concerned with the lesson.
In home lessons are generally limited to 30 minutes. Our beginner classes start at 45 minutes. Students use our computer lab for music theory and music writting for 15 minutes and then continue for another 30 minutes with the teacher. The teacher then covers more theory and the lesson for the day. All of this makes for a more enjoyable class and faster learning. Most young children loose interest in music lessons due to being bored and the process taking too long. Our class methods have proven to advance a student faster and keep their interest longer.

A recent article in The Globe and Mail, a Canadian Newspaper, stated that Sylvain Morena, a neuroscientist at Baycrest's Roman Research Institute, has focused his efforts of training the brain. He recently reported the results of a study in which children aged 4-6 years learned about music- the basics of rhythm, oitch and melody, in a computer based cognitive training program that involved games and cartoon characters. After 20 days of instruction, the children performed significantly better on a verabl IQ test compared to scores before the training.
Why would studying music lead to gains on verbal IQ? "Music and language share brain processing and structure", Dr Mareno says.
