Drummer Tyler Peasley of Seattle's Reverend Bear
Music is an essential part of a well-rounded education and crucial for brain development for young and old.
Studies consistently show that children who learn to play an instrument develop stronger math and language skills than those who don't.
Children who enjoy playing an instrument are also happier, more confident and more creative throughout their life.
Music education is a gift that your children will cherish forever.
