Resources for 
Music Education

Music education is no different than any other form of education and we encourage parents to actively participate in their child’s music education. It is bound to greatly benefit the child and parent-child relationship. We maintain some useful internet links and references to help our parents better understand all aspects of music education and become an integral part of this process.
