Music is a great way to express yourself. It can be a challenging way to help with coordination skills as well as stimulate most of the senses. Music has played a significant role in our history and culture and is a big part of our technology and entertainment pleasure. If you are looking for a fun and exciting class and a great way to open your imagination to a whole new world, then come join music!


Even if, in one or other of them, I had a particular word or words in mind, I would not tell anyone, because the same word means different things to different people. Only the songs say the same thing, arouse the same feeling, in everyone – a feeling that can’t be expressed in words.
~Felix Mendelssohn (German composer, 1809-1847)


Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosphy. Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.
~Ludwig van Beethoven (German composer, 1770-1827)
