Student of the Month

I am a third year student and passionate about everything accordion. I strive to practice two hours a day, six days a week. I am currently in level 3, including sight reading and rhythm exercises. The seventh day is my weekly one- hour private lesson. I keep a spreadsheet to track my practice time.

My new hobby is learning accordion restoration and repair. This winter I plan to start a second practice session to branch out and learn additional songs. My ultimate goal is to play our favorite songs with my wife.

Happy Birthday!

The Importance of Music For Young Children

By Melodie Cannon

MToddler Music Classesusic has been proven to be extremely beneficial for young children in their developmental skills. Music connects the body to the brain, enabling the two to work together in sync. This can improve a child’s motor, social, emotional, intellectual, language, and literacy skills, as well as learning sounds and the meanings of words during their early development.

Young infants can recognize melodies before they can understand or form words of their own. Young children, especially toddlers, enjoy songs that are silly or relatable to them in their learning and vocabulary. Toddlers also love songs involving movement of their bodies, as well as repetition.

“What a tragedy it would be if we lived in a world where music was not taught to children.” — H. Norman Schwarzkoph
