Music Lessons At The JCC

The JCC is proud to offer music lessons for both children and adults. Recent studies found that studying and playing musical instruments:

  • Facilitated learning other subjects and enhances skills.

  • Helped develop the part of the left side of the brain known to be involved with processing language.

  • Led to a small increase in the IQs of six-year-olds who were given weekly voice and piano lessons.

  • Grew neural activity than people not in music training. When you’re a musician and you’re playing an instrument, you have to be using more of your brain.

  • Improved sound discrimination and fine motor tasks.

  • Was linked to improved spatial intelligence, which means that understanding music can help children visualize various elements that should go together, like they would do when solving a math problem.

  • Helped children score higher in English and in math scores on standardized tests.

  • Helped with basic memory recall.
