The BWES Band and Strings program allows all 3rd, 4th and 5th graders the opportunity to play a musical instrument. Learning to play an instrument is a valuable experience that can unlock a lifetime of enjoyment for your child.
Skills learned through the discipline of music transfer to study skills, communication skills, and cognitive skills that are all beneficial to every part of the school curriculum. Children involved in music show increased memory skill, coordination, and concentration over children not involved in music. Research indicates that a child's intelligence can increase with music instruction, and also shows that music study can actively contribute to brain development. Thank you for your support of music education!
