Benefits of Music:
Numerous studies over the last 50 years have shown that music increases academic achievement, fosters increased confidence and social interaction, and increases concentration and discipline. Crocker students gain these benefits as well as learn teamwork, reading music, and how to create a lush string sound. A number of our graduating students have successfully passed auditions into both the Sacramento and the Camellia youth symphonies. Not to be forgotten, students will create music they can be proud of and have fun in the process.

$35/month due first lesson of the month. There will also be a one time $15 material’s fee at the beginning of the year (strings, music, accessories).
