Why Back-to-School Season is the BEST Time to Start Music Lessons

Back-to-school season is now in full swing. Students are getting settled into the classroom and parents are adjusting to fall schedules and routines. It's also one of the BEST times of the year to enroll in music lessons. Here's why now is the time to sign up for music lessons!

Fall Lessons Fill Up FAST!

Fall is perhaps the busiest time of the year for us at West Colfax Academy. Our teachers add new students to their schedules every week. If you plan to sign up for lessons, don't delay! The perfect time slot for your schedule could get snapped up fast.

Back-to-School Means Back to Focus

Summer vacation winding down means a renewed focus on academics. It's also the time to refocus and set goals for the coming school year. Picking up a new instrument, mastering a tough piece, or finally confronting performance jitters are all great musical goals to see through this fall.

Enrollment in Music Lessons Can Improve Academic Performance

Multiple studies have confirmed that taking music lessons is beneficial for brain development in young children. In fact, enrolling in lessons may even improve a student's GPA! A large-scale study from the University of British Columbia found that "students who participated in music-related activities from grades 7-12 achieve significantly higher test scores" than students who opted not to study music. Music challenges the brain in multiple ways and allows students to express themselves creatively while forging connections with their peers.

Practice Now For Performance Opportunities Later in the Year

Enrolling in lessons now give students four months of study before the end of the year. That's the perfect amount of time to learn new skills and new songs for upcoming recitals. The holidays are also a great time for additional performance opportunities. Students can even be ready to show off their musical prowress for family during holiday gatherings!
