In this era of short attentions spans, STEM classes being favored over the arts, and an ever increasing digital landscape, music instruction has become more important than ever. Not only does learning music teach fine motor skills, exercises short/long term memory, improves attention spans and helps raise IQ when taught right, music can be challenging and fun. Ask anyone who’s taken some sort of music class as a child and they’ll more often than not recount how music lessons have helped them in other aspects of life later on. Sacramento is rich with music classes for kids of all ages. Here are just a few of the noteworthy ones.
