Why Music?

Psychologists, neuroscientists, and experts in child development have demonstrated that music does more for children than bring them joy; it helps their brain cells make the connections needed for virtually every kind of intelligence.


One of the main activities that activates, stimulates and uses the entire brain is music. Engagement in music programs:

  • Enhances fine motor skills
  • Prepares the brain for achievement
  • Fosters superior working memory
  • Cultivates thinking skills
  • Improves recall and retention of verbal information
  • Boosts creativity, reading and English language skills
  • Allows disengaged students to re-engage with learning
  • Builds trust, confidence and resilience
FACT: 85% of children in The Netherlands have never been in a classical music concert.
