PIANO/VOICE/INSTRUMENTS BY FORTEPIANO - PRIVATE LESSONS
The Academy of Creative Arts collaborates with FortePiano Music School to bring music lessons to Burlington!
Choose either private lessons or group ensembles - students of all levels and ages are welcome to sign up and cultivate a love for music.
Private lessons allow students to work closely with a professional musician and work more in depth on their instrument. They will develop a more professional tone and better technique as a result, and instructors will be able to cater to each student's personal goals.

DID YOU KNOW? - Music education and its positive effect on students -
Music is integral for children's academic development. Playing an instrument helps train children to remain focused for long periods of time. Studies have shown that studying music is linked to better academic performance as well - reading and playing music sharpens memorization and cultivates the desire to improve.
Children who play a musical instrument over the course of a few years are more likely to excel in their studies, work better in teams, have enhanced critical thinking skills, and pursue further education. Not only does the simple act of playing an instrument improve technical coordination skills, but music engages areas of the brain that are involved with paying attention and making predictions.
Although playing an instrument can be a challenge, students acquire a sense of achievement after reaching their goals and will be driven to persevere musically as well as in other aspects of life. They learn discipline and the benefits of individual effort, and playing in group ensembles teaches camaraderie, interdependence, and the importance of individual responsibility.
