Free Music Lessons and Instruments for Children in Care


Music is an outlet for emotions. Children who learn to play an instrument can express deep feelings they may have struggled to voice otherwise. As a child becomes more comfortable with expression, their self-confidence starts to grow and thrive. As reported by TIME, a study from Northwestern University found that children who create music develop sharper cognitive skills, which results in better academic performance and social functioning. Music changes the brain.
