Spring 2016 marks the the 5th annual Sweet Earth Arts & Music Festival…. Yes, it is the big number 5 and we couldn’t be more excited to share in the fun with you! The students in the study who received music instruction had improved sound discrimination and fine motor tasks, and brain imaging showed changes to the networks in the brain associated with those abilities, according to the Dana Foundation, a private philanthropic organization that supports brain research.
Not only does it expose students to the richness and diversity of their own culture, but music is a fantastic way to expose them to others as well. Their music builds on the foundations of 80s-era Creation Records artists with towers of glistening electronica. You can on request find shows in Paris that cater to the tourists when they demand some folk music.

The B.A. in music is a four-year curriculum offered in the Faculty of Arts for students not intending to pursue music performance professionally or who do not meet the special admission requirements for the School of Music’s Bachelor of Music degree.
The Bachelor of Music Studies and Bachelor of Arts may be undertaken full-time over five years or part-time over ten years. Research has also found a causal link between music and spatial intelligence, which means that understanding music can help children visualize various elements that should go together, like they would do when solving a math problem. Schellenberg provided nine months of piano and voice lessons to a dozen six-year-olds, drama lessons (to see if exposure to arts in general versus just music had an effect) to a second group of six-year-olds, and no lessons to a third group. Music can improve your child’ abilities in learning and other nonmusic tasks, but it’s important to understand that music does not make one smarter. There are three straightforward groups of native piece of music styles: southern styles, northern styles and other styles.
Students may be eligible to exit the double degree program and graduate with either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Music after three years, depending on the units studied. To wrap up this point, private lessons are great, often better than what is provided even in schools that have ample art and music budgets.
