SHHH! DON'T TELL THEM CLASSICAL MUSIC BUILDS BETTER SCHOLARS.


The benefits of listening to and playing music are proven, improving concentration, fostering creativity and bolstering other brain functions. But we prefer to tell our charges in school residencies and the Arkansas Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (APYO) that listening to and learning music is fun and builds friendships.
