Music Lessons for School Children
Structured, informed and responsive teaching tailored to each individual student's learning needs and interests.
[My daughter] was also doing guitar in a specialist program at school, but I decided to withdraw her from it and focus on cello at Advantage because she learns so much more and so much deeper and the lessons bring everything together – theory, ear training, technique etc. Advantage is the best environment for learning.

Through a culture of support and celebration, of persistence and patience and of growth through success and failure,
our students learn how
to think, how to structure their learning, recognise patterns, problem solve, listen intently, self-reflect, and self-evaluate;
our students are given opportunities to
explore, improvise, pursue ideas, and to take ownership of their learning;
our students come to value
precision, excellence, commitment, and being the best they can be.
It's not about us, it's about you
and what you want for your child, what's in their best interest, and how we can help you achieve your goals for them.
A large-scale study in Canada found that students who learned to play a musical instrument in primary school and continued playing in high school not only score significantly higher but were about one academic year ahead of their non-music peers with regard to their English, mathematics and science skills.
A study in the USA found that students in high-quality school music programs score higher on standardised tests compared to students in schools with deficient music education programs, regardless of the socioeconomic level of the school or school district.
