No Singing

  Fiction:  Lyrics and singing have
   always been an important part of Jazz.
   Jazz music has many outstanding
   female and male vocalists. Ever heard
   of Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson, Billie
   Holiday, Carmen McRae, Diana Krall,
   Diane Schuur, Dianne Reeves, Lena
   Horne, Josephine Baker, Peggy Lee,
   Dinah Washington & Sarah Vaughn to
   mention a few, and we haven't started
   naming the male vocalists yet!

EDUCATION FACT #1 - CONCENTRATION

As parents and loved ones, we should strive to give our children the tools to build a successful life, and one of the best choices
you can make for your children is giving them the gift of music.  We should encourage our children as early as possible to listen
to and make music.

Did you know that in addition to improving creativity, learning music cultivates many skills that will continue to be useful to your
children throughout their lives.  Studies have shown that skills associated with listening to music and taking music lessons help
develop a child’s Concentration.

That’s right, … Learning to play a musical instrument will help your child develop concentration, as they must focus on a particular activity over extended periods of time. 

Developing concentration in this way also will help them when they must focus their attention on other subjects at school. 

Consider taking private music lessons.  They’re effective and often very affordable.
