Kids love music, but not just listening to it - they're happy when they're singing and dancing, and they love creating their own music to express themselves. At RemoteLearning.school we are proud to roll out our online musical instrument classes which include a variety of musical instruments so that your kid can discover the one that he loves playing the most. We will be teaching to play the guitar, trumpet, violin, flute, piano, drums, and many more!

Why learn to play a musical instrument as a kid? In addition to being a rewarding way to express their creativity, and the joy of the parents when the kids perform a concert for them, here are some other benefits:

Improves Memory and Stimulates the Brain

Playing a musical instrument is like exercise for the brain, and it helps improves your child's memory. Playing the instrument will stimulate almost every part of your kid's brain. This will in turn help improve their academic performance.

Improves Communication and Social Skills

Playing a musical instrument can help your kids expand their social circle. For example, they can create a band with their friends! They can also be the "life of the party" and show off their musical skills in gatherings to make new friends.

Increases Motor Skills and Hand-Eye Coordination

Playing a musical instrument requires a lot of movement from your kid's hands, arms, and feet, at a correct rhythmic timing. As they improve those skills while playing music, they will also get better at other tasks such as typing and sports.

Instills Confidence

As the kids learn the instrument and start to play better and better, their self confidence will improve as they realize their potential! They might struggle with the instrument at the beginning, but as they start getting the melody right, it will build a sense of self-belief, the mindset and foundation of self-confidence.

Refines Patience and Discipline

Over the course of learning to play the musical instrument, the child will learn about delay gratification, perseverance, and achieving goals. While practicing on their instrument for hours, your kid will learn the power of patience.

So, there's no doubt that learning to play an instrument has enormous benefits for your kid's personal, academic, professional, and social life.

RemoteLearning.school musical instrument classes are available to all enrolled students, so talk to your kid today to see what instrument inspires them the most, and we hope they will have fun in their journey as they master playing it!
