Virtual School fo Music

Learning Music at the Virtual School of Music

Learning to play a musical instrument is a great way to nurture talent, improve confidence and self esteem and to develop social skills.  Music has a beneficial effect on developing intelligence, teamwork, discipline and managing stress as well as making you feel good.

The Benefits of Music

Learning a musical instrument isn’t simply about playing music.  As well as being great fun it encourages and assists the development of a whole host of skills, whether social, physical, emotional or intellectual.

The satisfaction and sense of achievement that comes as a child progresses encourages confidence and boosts self esteem.  Practice improves self-discipline and the physical act of playing develops co-oedination.  Learning to read music can help with both foreign and native language skills
