MUSIC IS MAGIC
Why we give instruments to kids
Research confirms what we all know, children who play music are inevitably more confident and creative and have a substantially positive effect on the community in which they live because of this. From the educational standpoint, English, Mathematics, Science and Foreign language skills are all positively impacted by a child’s participation in a school’s chorus, orchestra or band. While many schools are cutting or downsizing their existing music classes, research and experience bear out that music appreciation and music performance in school are central to developing the whole child. Music and Magic is approached by many families who cannot afford the rentals of these programs and those who can, find that the children are at a loss when the program ends and the instrument is no longer available to them. We feel it is imperative that for the child to deeply connect to the experience they need to have their own instrument. Studies confirm that participation in music makes an even greater impact upon the life skills and academic performance of financially challenged and other at-risk students. Music invites creativity, self-expression, healthy release of emotions and self-esteem. Music and the arts are a critical part of a thriving community.
