10 of the Best Places for Kids’ Music Lessons in Houston

kidsmusiclessonsParents need to be aware of the benefits of music lessons. These benefits go far beyond learning to play a few songs on the piano or strum some tunes around a summer campfire. Montreal researchers discovered that music lessons before age seven generate stronger networks in the brain, and also revealed that the changes in the brain extend beyond the skill of playing an instrument. Language and reasoning skills are sharpened by musical instruction, so you’re actually giving your child an academic head start when you enroll her in classes. These are ten of the most popular and high-quality haunts for pint-sized musicians in the making living in the Houston area.

2. Memorial Music Together

Another program for very small children is located on Memorial Drive in Houston at the Presbyterian Church. Research-based music instruction for kids gives them an opportunity to get physical while they learn to make music together. You can take your newborn to this program designed for kids from birth to five. The Music Together program is built on the premise that humans are inherently musical. Adult involvement is strongly encouraged in this developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum.

3. Project GreenRoom
