1. You don't need to read sheet music


We know for sure that Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder couldn't read music and they were some of the best of all time, so clearly it's not required.  Furthermore, it would be downright cruel to make a dyslexic student read music.  You didn't learn to speak your first language by reading first, so why should music - the universal language - be any different?  Humans were playing music for thousands of years before it was ever written down, and you can too. 




2. It doesn't require a genetic gift.


Numerous studies have shown that there is no gene for music.  In fact, most people think they "aren't good at music" because they took old school lessons that were really boring and eventually quit without realizing that they were just stuck with the wrong approach.  We're on a mission to prove that if you like music, you can learn to play it.




3. Playing music is one of the best things you can do for your brain - at any age


Learning to play an instrument (including singing) provides extraordinary neurological benefits for the developing brain of a child, but this is also true for adults.  However, these benefits are directly correlated to the depth and quality of the learning experience.  Simply put, the more engaged a student is, the more profound the results.
