How Music Classes Can Help Your Child Succeed In School

Music classes for kids have been shown to help children succeed in school in a number of ways, including:

  • Larger vocabulary and enhanced reading comprehension skills

  • Improved memory

  • Increased problem-solving ability

Yet despite these benefits, when school budgets are cut, music and other art programs are often the first programs to go.

In this episode of District Family, we chat with Hope Greenleaf, owner of Tunes 4 Tots.

Hope has an innovative solution to this problem for parents that she shares in our interview.
