Help Your Child Succeed in School, Life, Work.

With training, very quickly singing can be done extremely well, which builds self-confidence. And singing is something that can be done throughout a lifetime.

Arts education prepares students for success in school and in life,, and choral singing is an integral part of arts education. There is plenty of evidence that singing in a choir helps students succeed in school, work, and life.

Study after study state that children who sing in choruses get significantly better grades; are better team players; have more advanced social skills; and achieve valuable life skills such as increased memory, creative problem-solving techniques, and good homework habits. (Research and statements from the US Department of Education, NEA, Chorus America, Arts Education Partnership and others.)
