What is Music?
Dictionaries and encyclopedias define music as "an artistic form of auditory communication incorporating instrumental or vocal tones in a structured and continuous manner." It is also defined as "any pleasing and harmonious sound" and "the sounds produced by singers or musical instruments."
There are a lot of definitions for music and it will take a whole book to explore the subject of music. If there is one true definition of music it is this; music is universal and yet it is also relative and subjective. What may be music to one may not be so to another.

School's in with Teach Me Bass Guitar

Hey, Mom and Dad. Now that the kids are back in school, they're going to be deciding what teams to join, what school clubs they'd like to try and... wait! Your daughter wants to learn to play the bass guitar? That's great. It's not great? What's wrong?
As it turns out, the music classes at her new school are crowded and currently only offering piano or acoustic guitar. This young lady's been a fan of the bass since she heard her first thunderstorm and curls her nose up at the idea of strapping on a heavy piano every day for practice. Hee, hee. Um... and she's never really cared to learn six-string guitar. You've looked into private lessons for her, but the one guy teaching bass guitar in her town offers only one lesson per week.
Once per week?
Sure. Each class consists of a particular musical topic, and the teacher will have her go through the theory and then the actual playing of the material. At the end of the lesson, he will give her hand-outs and study charts, and she will work on it until they met the following week.
So, what happens if she doesn't understand something and needs a helping hand between lessons? What if her lesson is Friday after school and she has to stay for detention for spray painting a picture of Flea on the bathroom wall? (it could happen) Whatever the reason, if this young student misses a lesson, or needs supplemental help, private lessons that hang on someone else's time schedule might not be right for her; she might give up her dream to play the bass! And that's no good.

The Benefits of Music

They focus better, have a higher self- esteem and play with their peers better. Musical experiences help create pathways for the sensory cells development in the brain and while listening, helps open the doors to these pathways. The strongest connections are made when they actively participate. Preschoolers start by singing favorite nursery rhymes like "happy Birthday" making up words to eventually completing the song.
