Benefits of Music Education
Learning to play an instrument (including voice) develops confidence, coordination, and concentration.

We offer a well-rounded curriculum that includes classical music as well as jazz and pop. Above all, our goal is to equip our students with skills and knowledge that will enable them to enjoy music for a lifetime. Students will learn to read, write and properly interpret music along with learning how to sing.
“Music lessons have been shown to improve a child’s performance in school. After eight months of music lessons, preschoolers tested showed a 46% boost in their special IQ, which is crucial for higher brain functions such as complex mathematics.” — Francis Rauscher, Ph.D. and Gordon Shaw, Ph.D.
Instructors and Types of Music We Teach
Our voice instructors are professionals in their field, therefore all teachers can teach a variety of different styles of music such as pop, rock, Disney, Broadway, musical theater, soul, jazz, Christian, and classical. Our voice teachers tailor the methodology to each student’s personality and goals. Whatever your goals are, our voice teachers are here to help you and customize a lesson plan for you. Above all we focus on developing the skills that are most stimulating to each student and strive to make our lessons fun and exciting experience for each student.
QCMS sponsors several events each year to encourage students to set goals, practice, and celebrate their accomplishments. Solo recitals are held three times a year in Spring, Summer and Winter. Each Recital finalizes one of the three Semesters at QCMS allowing students to set and accomplish the goals for each term.
Practice and Parental Support
Sufficient and proper practice is necessary to ensure progress. Most children require parental guidance in organizing their time to accomplish the goals set during lessons. We believe in the importance of the triangle: student, parent, and teacher — all working together. All students are different, and it is our belief that all children can learn to sing with the proper guidance and support. Developing a love of music in addition to making music is our ultimate goal.
