Your child will grow, musically, and in all ways, here.”

6 Reasons Everyone Needs to Play Music

Music builds confidence. Every part of a musical group is essential and being part of that big picture is huge. Whether it’s one note , or a massive solo, the group needs you and pulling that off builds confidence. Huge confidence.

Music is about communication. Playing in a band isn’t that different from playing a sport when it comes to how essential it is to communicate with others.  Get good at that, and you’ve got a skill you can use in music and beyond.

Music is about creativity. From songwriting to arranging a cover tune, music challenges kids to imagine new possibilities.  And when done as a team, the possibilities are endless.

Music is ridiculously fun. Forget about the piano lessons you took as a kid that you begged to quit for years. Fun is one of the main two motivators for a child and there’s nothing more fun than playing music with your peers. These band classes are a blast!

Making music is work. There is no sugar coating the fact that developing the tools to make music with others demands a work ethic. Musicians can learn alone but there is nothing like the motivation of others to take it to the next level.

Music requires skills. Playing in a band is the best way we know to get kids to deal with the fact that playing an instrument or singing on key….well….it ain’t always easy. A band helps each musician define the exact skills they need. And better yet gives them a clear goal for their practice time at home.

Make this Birthday One to Remember! 

 Whatever magic number you’re turning, let music guide your day! 

 

“As someone who grew up taking piano lessons from very stereotypical, stern teachers, I especially appreciate that BMF kids learn by doing & playing music right away. There are no stodgy recitals. Instead, the students have gigs, where they learn songs and accompany each other. I highly recommend you give BMF a try.”

-Frank, BMF Parent
