Why begin learning a foreign language today?
Exposing a child to a foreign language at an early age (as early as 3 years old) will result in much easier and better fluency than if they learn later in life.
Research has shown that children with the ability to speak more than one language have better memory, program solving skills, critical thinking skills, and are more creative.
Higher Academic Achievement
Research conducted by the Louisiana Department of Education shows that children who have studied a foreign language achieve higher scores on standardized tests in reading, language arts and mathematics than those who have not.
Learning a foreign language opens many doors. Those who know more than one language have access to resources, people, places, and things that the rest of us do not.
With the cultural diversity in the United States today, developing language abilities as children will impact their futures in the work force.

We offer 30 minute violin and piano lessons to children as young as 3 on a weekly basis. The instruments are provided by us, they are tuned before every class, and every student will have his or her own instrument (no sharing). The musicians will receive a group lesson (6 children and less) every week for the entire school year and on the last week they will give a performance.
30 minute sessions contain 3 or 4 Parts:
Intonation – We start by singing SOL-FEGE (DO-RE-MI-FA-SO)
Melody – Elementary studies and melodies played on the violin or piano
Rhythm training – Using tambourines
Music Theory – Basic theory assignment
🎶 Are the violins and pianos provided? Yes, each violinist and pianist will practice with a quality instrument provided by Stringing With Angela. 🎶 Do you make up missed lessons? Yes, only if it’s due to poor weather, a holiday, or a teacher being absent due to an illness. We do not prorate or deduct missed lessons. It’s a flat monthly rate. 🎶 Will I be charged if my child damages a violin or piano during the class?? No. The enrolment fee includes a payment for insurance.
BENEFITS OF PLAYING AN INSTRUMENT AT A YOUNG AGE
People who have received a music education are generally smarter than their non-musical counterparts are. Extensive research done in this area has proved that children who learn to play a musical instrument do better in academics
Develops Social Skills
Music helps you connect. Learning an instrument enlarges your social circle since you get to meet more people than you usually would.
Choosing to take music lessons can help build confidence. Once you are aware that you are able to do something well, like play the flute for instance, you naturally become more confident of your skills.
Music and memory go hand in hand. Learning to play a musical instrument makes you use both parts of your brain and this in turn boosts memory power.
