Now that you are here and we have your attention, we ask you to take a moment to consider how a top quality musical training may impact the development of growing children in many positive ways. All that is required is for continual involvement of children in music making and jsut this repairs the development path and achievement attitude of children. Watch this brief video from the BBC which describes the impact of a musical intervention programme that turns a failing school into a high achievement school in a very short timeframe.
Tip: Turn the sound on just after starting the video or you will miss the voice-over at the beginning.
