Back to School

We hope that everyone had an amazingly wonderful, music filled Summer Holiday! Now that the Summer is dwindling down, schools are back in session!

Some of you may be rejoicing, while others may be feeling a bit blue about having to return to the classroom.

Have no fear, TMB is here!

 

Getting an education is very important, but can be a real challenge, especially if you are not feeling motivated. We want to help everyone keep the motivation running this year- with MUSIC!

TMB offers music lessons for students in and out of school, to help break up the traditional learning schedule with something a little different.

Music education is a very important part of life in our communities. Whether or not a student ever “makes it big,” is not important, but rather the lasting effect that music has on the soul and psyche of the individual. Music changes the way we think and feel. It helps each and every one of us find an outlet- to what we are feeling, what we may be going through.

There have been countless articles written over centuries of the importance of teaching the arts, especially music. Below you will find some great articles that help to explain how music lessons help create better people, as a whole.

One of our favourites is below, which has a great overview of the impact of music lessons, as a whole:

10 Benefits of Music Lessons

  • Improve reading skills, increase vocabulary and language ability.
  • Develop listening skills, aural awareness, abstract thinking and imagination.
  • Increase memory skills, builds concentration and attention span.
  • Build social skills, self-discipline, patience and improve behaviour.
  • Stimulate and strengthen the same part of the brain needed for maths and reasoning.
  • Piano lessons particularly develop fine motor skills needed for writing.
  • Build confidence and emotional growth and make a happier child.
  • Music performance teaches kids to deal with nerves and stressful presentation situations like interviews.
  • Children who have music lessons score higher in their SATs writing, maths & science and higher grades in general.
  • Music lessons develop the skills that provide a firm foundation for learning.

The above table was taken from http://www.letsplaykidsmusic.com/benefits-of-music-lessons/

Even the Royal Conservatory has written about the benefits, even providing scientific study research as proof.

Musical activity involves nearly every region of the brain that we know about, and nearly every neural sub system.”    -Daniel Levetin

Our communities have been built by some of the world’s greatest leaders, and even they were influenced and driven through the power of music.

“The Theory of Relativity occurred to me by intuition, and music is the driving force behind this intuition. My parents had me study the violin from the time I was six. My new discovery is the result of musical perception.” – Albert Einstein

 

        

 

Although we may not all be destined to be Einstein, we can still all reap the multitude of benefits that music will provide our lives. 

See you soon.....
