Combining music and
learning into a child’s
educational environment!

At the Golden Strip School of Music Early Learning Music Academy, we desire to equip each child with both musical and academic knowledge that will provide the opportunity for further success in their primary schooling. By incorporating and intertwining musical concepts and vocabulary into a child’s learning environment, children are able to maximize their academic potential by approaching core concepts of beginning education in an abstract and cultivative nature.

Here at the Golden Strip School of Music Early Learning Music Academy, we strive to foster a fun, safe, clean, and respectful environment where children can express themselves freely and creatively: a place that will never hinder their personal advancement and success in education.


  1. By developing a music-listening vocabulary, young children are able to form more neurological connections within the cortex of their brain to strengthen their aural senses within the critical period of time for brain development.

  2. Music allows children to gain insight into themselves and others, as well as the world around them. They are able to heighten their creativity and imagination and sustain these attributes as they grow.

  3. For preschool-aged children, some forms of music education have shown to increase spatial-temporal (or the visualization of how various elements work together) reasoning within their thinking process.

  4. Every child has the potential to learn music (or music aptitude), from birth through age 9, but their aptitude stabilizes after age 9, making it harder to develop musical skills later in life.

  5. Music Play aids in developing and strengthening fine motor functions, allowing the child to have more control of their body and a better understanding of how their body moves.

  6. Musical learning uses the same part of the brain as language development. Music learning aids with sound comprehension, imitation of words, and expression of independent thoughts.

  7. Playing and learning music in a group setting helps children to develop socialization behaviors such as leadership, cooperation, sharing, patience, self-expression, self-discipline, and an emotional understanding of others around them.

  8. The use of musical concepts and aural opportunities aids in the retention of basic core learning by providing a multitude of ways a child can think through problems and provides an outlet for preferential learning styles such as kinesthetic, aural, and visual forms.

  9. Learning music can assist in learning and understanding mathematical ideas as a large portion of learning music is subconscious math (such as patterns, counting, and fractions to name a few).

  10. Music education at a young age can aid in memory, physical and mental short-term recall, focus, hand-eye coordination, and an understanding that repetition reinforces general learning.
