Music Lessons Help Student Grades

According to a German Institute for Economic Research study, teens who take music lessons outside of school score significantly higher in terms of cognitive skills, have better grades, and are more conscientious and ambitious than their peers.

The Creative Arts Are A Reflection Of Our Civilization

“The creative arts are the measure and reflection of our civilization. They offer many children an opportunity to see life with a larger perspective…The moral values we treasure are reflected in the beauty and truth that is emotionally transmitted through the arts. The arts say something about us to future generations.”

~ Ann P. Kahn, Former President of The National PTA

The NAPBIRT Convention 2017

A couple of months ago we talked about how we’re always learning in our repair shop to keep up with the latest trends and techniques in instrument repair. In late April, I was able to attend yet another key event in the life of a repair technician.

This year the annual NAPBIRT (National Association of Professional Band Instrument Technicians) finds us in Albuquerque NM. There are almost 300 technicians  attending this year in order to learn about new techniques, methods and materials used in the repair of your instruments.

The Arts Stimulate Creativity

“In my own philanthropy and business endeavors, I have seen the critical role that the arts play in stimulating creativity and in developing vital communities….the arts have a crucial impact on our economy and are an important catalyst for learning, discovery, and achievement in our country.”
