Music enriches your social skills – Taking music lessons isn’t always just about learning an instrument. You might decide, when you are ready, that you want to join a band. You’ll make new friends along the way and you’ll develop a bond and sense of kinship with the other musicians around you.  You’ll soon find that nothing beats a jamming session with friends!

Music is a great confidence booster – Performing in front of an audience or your family at home requires a level of confidence, regardless of how good other people think you are. But the great thing is, once you’ve found your feet, your new found self-assurance will filter through to other areas of your life.

Music is FUN – It begins with a sense of achievement and growing confidence that will quickly become a passion! So whether you are jamming with friends or performing in front of a crowd, the enjoyment and satisfaction of creating something that you, your friends and even strangers can enjoy is a feeling that’s hard to top!
