Music enriches lives and expands creativity.

My son has performed in one CML free recital and is getting ready to play in another one–his progress was so warmly encouraged and nurtured by the teacher, I started to take lessons, too! We are having a blast.

Studies show:

  • Playing music has been proven to relieve stress and reduce anxiety, depression, and a broad range of physical ailments

  • Teenagers who play an instrument score higher on the SAT, have less disciplinary issues and a lower risk of developing substance abuse problems

  • Adults with musical experience score higher on cognitive tests than non-musicians, demonstrating better memory and ability to adapt to new information
