I can point you to many sites that have accumulated the data, such as, and  Besides being fun, which should be all the reason you need; there are many specialists that have proven numerous benefits to be enjoyed by young students of music.  To list them all here I would most likely lose your interest but you should know that brain development of the music student prepares them for increased language development, enhanced reading and math skills, better listening capacity and more academic achievements. But did you know that manual dexterity is improved with instrument playing? How about physical stamina and endurance?  You may have heard people say that arts enrich your life.  Many cultures don’t consider their children’s educations complete without music in it.

I think that one of the best reasons that I heard a mother give her son for taking music lessons was that as a musician he would be the most popular guy in the room.

Which reason to study music works for you?

Over the summer, our drum instructor Henry Rodriguez worked on a special duet with his student Matt. We want to share the music with you now, so that you in turn will share with someone else. This video is just a taste of what we do to develop passionate musicians here at Fender® Center for the Performing Arts.

While you probably know that Kids Rock Free® is a low cost music school, what you may not know is that we also offer scholarships to families with a financial need.

This November, help us keep sharing the music with the kids in our community. November 13 is GiveBig Day. Every $10 donation given will go to our Kids Rock Free program and help us qualify for additional gifts that will provide more access to music ed.
