Why we do what we do

Music has the power to do many things. It can make you dance, sing, clap your hands, tap your feet, whistle or even stop you in your tracks to just listen. It can take you on a rollercoaster of emotions from joy to sadness, love to anger and everywhere in between. Just hearing the opening bars of a song can transport you back to a different time and place in your life.

In an increasingly divided world, we need music more than ever because it is a truly universal language. People from totally different countries, cultures and backgrounds can communicate through it. 

It also has the most incredible list of proven health benefits:

  • Improves mood
  • Reduces stress
  • Lessens anxiety
  • Improves exercise performance
  • Eases pain
  • Provides comfort
  • Improves learning and understanding
  • Helps children with autism
  • Soothes premature babies

Music education is a hugely powerful force for good, helping to develop language skills, improving test scores, promoting self-esteem, improving listening skills, improving creativity… the list goes on and on. 

All of this is why we do what we do. As music teachers, we have the most incredible opportunity to have a powerful and positive impact on our student’s lives by passing on the knowledge, experience and skills that music has given us. We’re making the world a better place and who wouldn’t want to do that!
