The Benefits of

Music Education

Hershey Concert 2016

All students receive a one half hour lesson at school in a small group setting.  In addition, all students have the opportunity to perform in concerts both at their home school and in the award winningFundamental Music Honor Band!

Music education is a vital part of a child’s development. The opportunity to play an instrument offers something extraordinary to the development of the human brain, which makes studying a musical instrument unlike any other class your child can take. The benefits are far superior to what researchers previously imagined.
