"Our son has taken classes at Taber Music School for the last 8 years. He takes piano with Christine and guitar with Nima. He has gained an incredible amount of skill and feels quite comfortable performing music in front of an audience. We are happy to recommend Taber Music School to anyone. Easy 5 stars."
- Brian and Deb Bellows
Music lessons can be a wonderful opportunity for kids to develop their creativity, cognitive abilities, and appreciation for music! We encourage emotional expression through music and believe playing an instrument or engaging in musical activities provides an outlet for emotions, allowing kids to relax and unwind.

Five Benefits of Music Lessons for Kids
Music helps in the development of neural pathways involved in language, reasoning, spatial-temporal skills, and mathematical thinking.
Learning to play an instrument helps children develop an emotional vocabulary, as they learn to interpret and convey different moods and feelings through music.
Fine Motor Skills and Coordination
Regular practice helps children refine their motor skills, finger strength, and hand-eye coordination, which can have a positive impact on their overall physical development.
By setting goals and working towards them, children learn the value of perseverance and develop a strong work ethic.
Social Skills and Confidence
Music provides children with opportunities for social interaction, collaboration, and teamwork. They learn to listen to others, cooperate, and communicate effectively with their peers.
