The purpose of the program is to broaden the education of the child by giving him/her an experience in and an understanding of music. The key is involvement. Music is a highly individual activity in which the student has to get personally involved. The cultural and character-building advantages to be gained from early exposure to music and the mental and physical discipline involved in learning to read and play music are of immeasurable value. Our goal is to bring the experience of music to every child
