We believe that being involved in musical activities has huge benefits from improving IQ to increasing self esteem, building team spirit to developing imagination.

Here’s what the government says:

  • Ofsted say that children’s involvement in music engages and re-engages pupils, increasing their self esteem, and maximising their progress in education and not just in music
  • Research has shown a direct link between music and improved reading ability in children
  • Evidence suggests a link between mathematics and music and a connection between music and increased scores in IQ
  • Music can have a positive impact on personal and social development, including increased self reliance, confidence, self-esteem, sense of achievement and ability to relate to others
  • Participating in music groups and needing to work together towards a common goal, for example school bands, develops discipline, teamwork, cooperation, self-confidence, responsibility and social skills.
