About WMA

Our vision is to train up each student to express themselves with music. Learning every aspect of music to expand their knowledge.

There are several articles and books out about music and the benefits of learning an instrument. In one article from Men’s Health Magazine they give several scientific benefits of playing an instrument. Just a few of those are:

  1.  A dual study from the Mind-Body Wellness Center and Loma Linda University School of Medicine and Applied Biosystems found that stress can be reduced on a genomic level by playing an instrument. Rocking out actually reverses your body’s response system to pressure!
  2. A new Scottish study says if you play the guitar—or any musical instrument, for that matter—you’re more likely to have sharper brain function, which can help guard against mental decline in the future.
  3. Researchers from the Netherlands found that patients who practiced music for more than 100 minutes a day showed a significant drop in blood pressure and a lower heart rate than those who didn’t.
  4. Researchers from Michigan State University found that musicians who picked up an instrument at an early age and continued nurturing their craft throughout adulthood had a better chance of launching successful invention—logging patents, building businesses, and publishing pieces.
