Music’s effect on the brain is overly complex as studies have been linked to various benefits. Listening to music can build the immune system, ease anxiety, improve cognitive development, and the most useful benefit to a student is music’s ability to improve memory and focus during a study session. All of the above can help Veterans.
American veterans return home after serving in the military for one, two, and sometimes many more tours of duty. Veterans have lived under unsuitable conditions and devastating stress, both mentally and physically. No matter their military rank or position, a Veteran is still a Veteran, and profound effects from their time in the military can still affect their daily life. Music and Kids, is dedicated to help everyone returning home to transition back into a daily life with family, friends, and work.
Educational programs can be intimidating. Our music program for Veterans is a one-on-one teacher and student relationship. Students will have the ability to learn at their own pace through our method of direct learning. We build character, responsibility and strength through music.
