There are numerous social, emotional, and educational benefits of learning to play an instrument or sing. Besides making you smarter, music is enjoyable and can make you happy! Studying music teaches children and adults alike to be creative, expressive, and discover feelings, emotions, and moods. Learning an instrument builds self-confidence, improves memory, relieves stress, and teaches problem-solving and listening skills.

Playing an instrument takes concentration, patience, discipline, and perseverance. Performing is an important part of learning to play an instrument or sing. The results can be life-changing. Through music, students meet new people and learn about amazing cultures around the world. At PAC, we encourage a diverse repertoire by offering various styles of music such as classical, jazz, Latin, folk, rock ‘n roll, and many more! Not only does learning an instrument help with math and schoolwork, but it also improves motor skills and coordination. A sense of achievement, accomplishment and self-discovery are all realized when performing – for either your teacher or in front of a group.

PAC offers private and group music lessons for children, teens, and adults at all skill levels while encouraging participation in recitals at the end of each semester as well as offering other performance opportunities. Lessons are taught during two 17-week semesters during the school year and are individually scheduled over the summer. PAC faculty are highly trained in their respective fields and pride themselves on educating the whole person – helping students of all ages learn the skills, enjoyment, and magic of the performing arts.
