Music is an essential part of any child or adult's education and life experience. Learning an instrument can improve concentration, coordination, character (through diligent practice), self-confidence (through performance), appreciation of different kinds of music, and ability to express ideas and emotions. In other words, a quality music education can provide the tools needed for success in life.
Discovering different genres of music through playing an instrument can also be an incredible life-long joy. If you want to fall in love with music, then the Prince George Conservatory of Music is just the place to do it!
