Music Lessons Offer Lifelong Benefits – and Long & McQuade Has One for Everybody in Your Family

Long & McQuade (Family Fun Calgary)

You might love the dulcet tones of a piano melody or prefer the rhythmic strumming of the guitar. Any music education offers its students a variety of benefits, including the improved development of language and reasoning, perseverance, problem-solving, confidence, and teamwork skills.  Long & McQuade believes that every person is capable of acquiring the skills and knowledge required to play a musical instrument and then reap all these rewards.

Check out an appearance by Ruth McCosh, from Long & McQuade Calgary South, on Global TV. She covers when and how to consider introducing your child to music lessons and an instrument.

And in another Global News interview, Long & McQuade’s Cesar Viloria-Petit talks about the connection between learning and music.

Music lessons are not just for kids, and not just for learning classical music! Long & McQuade welcomes students of every age and skill level and offers instruction in a wide variety of musical styles.

  • piano

This year, give your child (and yourself!) the gift of music. Whether you’re plunking out a few notes of your favourite song in your downtime or planning on teaching others someday, a music education is something that will offer countless benefits. And did we mention that it’s really cool to be able to perform for friends and family at parties and campfires?
