Welcome to The Village Music School!

Music EducationWelcome to The Village Music School, where Everyone is Musical! Music education is very important for improving early brain development and to later enjoyment in life. At The Village Music School, we offer small group online music lessons to beginners in piano, guitar, drums, and violin across the continental United States. After the pandemic has passed and schools and other after-care centers reopen their After School programs, we will once again offer these lessons in-person at those schools and centers. All of our teachers are vetted, professionally educated musicians who have passed a background check. With our methods, beginning musicians learn to play a simple tune, such as “Are You Sleeping Brother John” or “Mary Had a Little Lamb” in their first lesson. Our focus is on success and fun while learning. Why not Contact Us today and enroll yourself or your child in a class today?

 Research Shows the Value of Music Education

Scientific research continues to show that music education has tremendous positive effects on the brains of children, and as a result, on their academic performance and general success later in life.

Early Childhood Music Education

“Musicians that began their training at a younger age had stronger structural connections than musicians with a later start.”Dr Simon Leipold, 

“Research shows that studying an instrument can help children excel in ways beyond the basic ABCs. Making music involves more than the voice or fingers playing an instrument; a child learning about music has to tap into multiple skill sets, often

simultaneously. A University of Toronto study found an increase in the IQs of six-year-olds who were given weekly vocal or instrumental lessons.”

“Music improves academic skills… develops physical skills… cultivates social skills… refines discipline and patience… boosts self-esteem… introduces children to other cultures.”

“New research provides more evidence that musical training enhances executive function, especially in the areas of cognitive flexibility, working memory, and processing speed, and this may explain the link to academic achievement.”

“Music ignites all areas of child development: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. For children and adults, music helps strengthen memory skills.”
