Every family has a different reason for considering a private school education, but nearly all agree that private schools provide their children with:

The time has come. Your child sings and hums all the time, dances around the house and expresses themselves with music everywhere they go. As parents, we want to encourage this, so we think – music lessons, and music instruments! The best time to get a jump start on music is when the child is…
As each child is unique, exposing them to explore many genres of music and types of instruments in the early years can play an instrumental role in sparking that connection for them to music.
