After-School Time Can Be Well Spent – With Manhattan Music Lessons

October 1, 2013 - Musical Education

Manhattan music lessons will keep your child off the streets – literally!

Your children are now back at school, but what are they doing in their free time? If they are like a majority of school-age kids, they are probably spending hours playing video and / or computer games – certainly not the most productive – or healthy – way to mold their growing minds.

As a parent, you’d want your children to be involved in a wholesome, educational activity and there is certainly no shortage of those in NYC In fact, as New Yorkers, our kids are very lucky to have such a vast array of interesting things to do. However, as the temperature gets cooler and fall turns into winter, you probably would prefer an indoor activity and, preferably, one that doesn’t require you to take your child out in all kinds of inclement weather.

You came to the right place! Hey Joe Guitar offers not only music lessons for a wide variety of instruments (see below), but our teachers will actually come to your home or office, eliminating the need for long commutes for you or your child.

Now, we are not saying that your child should get involved in music to the exclusion of everything else – especially sports. But we ARE saying that music education should be a part of his or her after-school activities because of numerous benefits it provides.

Why music?

There is plenty of evidence indicating that music lessons are fundamental to children’s physical, social, intellectual, and emotional development. How? Let us count the ways:

  1. It improves learning skills in reading, science, math, history, and foreign languages because music helps build reasoning and cognitive abilities
  2. Boosts confidence and self-esteem, leading to better social skills.
  3. Bolsters focus and concentration, which, in turn, build perseverance in setting and achieving goals
  4. Improves motor skills, coordination, and agility by working all the major muscle groups
  5. It’s fun! (We list it at the end, but this part is as important as all the others).

Let’s get acquainted!

Okay, so now you know all the reasons why your child will benefit from music education. Now, you might be wondering why choose Hey Joe Guitar. We are happy you asked.

We don’t mean to sound immodest, but we are really proud of our music school and our top-notch teachers, who are among the best in New York.

Again, let us list all the ways in which our Manhattan music lessons strike just the right note:

  1. We teach guitar, piano, voice, drums, trumpet, trombone, brass, reeds, saxophone, clarinet flute, violin, viola, cello, strings, accordion, ukulele, banjo, recorder, and mandolin.
  2. Our carefully screened teachers are all graduates of top music schools and conservatories, and have many years of teaching experience. They are patient, motivated, and used to working with children
  3. Lessons will take place in the comfort and convenience of your Manhattan home or office. (We also come to parts of Brooklyn and Riverdale section of the Bronx). This way, your child will get personalized lessons geared to his or her age, level, and personality.

One more thing…

Now that you know why music training is an excellent extracurricular activity for your son or daughter (or grandchild, niece, nephew), you might be interested to know that we make the enrollment process as easy as do-re-mi.

If you sign up before November 15, 2013, you will get 25 percent off the first two months of lessons. And if you want to offer the lessons as a gift, you can purchase a gift card and get a child on the right back-to-school track!
