Favorite thing about lessons at FSM:

The entire staff of FSM are really helpful and the teachers are great. My favorite part of taking lessons at FSM is how patient the instructors are and how they're always willing to help any of their students. I learned a lot in my years at FSM and I am glad to be a student here.


Ms. Adela (one of Tiffany’s teachers) says: Tiffany is a great student. She is absolutely fantastic. So talented, very emotional musically and very beautiful. I love her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

PET OF THE MONTH

 

Lady is an amazing cat. She is 9 years old. I rescued her from the Animal Shelter in Wylie 3 years ago.
My little girl is very musical. She is very good with children and this is the reason why Lady is a big
part of my musical storytimes for kids.
They always wait for her expecting a lot of fun.
The kitty is very  sweet.
She loves listening piano when I play music at home. My awesome girl makes me feel happy and very relaxed.
Lady also likes to play with my grandbaby.
They have so much joy  together. She is my little inspiration. I've been so blessed to have her as my friend and a partner.
I think a lot of people who have rescued animals from the Animal Shelters feel the same.
Sincerely,

Adela

Making Music a Daily Feature

 

Like all good parents, you want your children to have the best life they possibly can and that means through such acts as getting a good education, eating nutritious food, and maintaining healthy savings. On top of the basics, creativity and fun have their place in raising a well-rounded child. And one great way to introduce your children to being open and creative is to get them involved in music. Children who learn and enjoy music from an early age are much more creative and receptive to ideas. However, lessons can sometimes feel like a chore, so it's useful to find ways to be encouraging about the magic that is music well learned and beautifully played.

 

Integrate music in your children's daily activities. If you want your children to be musically talented or interested, involve them in music at all times. Have music on in the car, in the kitchen, when eating dinner, all the time. Constantly having music playing is a very good way to integrate music into their lives.

 

Encourage Your Children to Attend Music Lessons Step 1.jpg

 

Make music from everyday things. If you are cooking with your kids,

use the wooden spoons and upturned bowls to make up a song while you bake. If you're out playing sport together, use the sporting gear to make musical sounds. Find music in the ordinary so that children can see how easy it is to make music a constant part of their lives.

 

 

Encourage Your Children to Attend Music Lessons Step 1Bullet1.jpg

 

Make music all about fun. There are many ways to help your

children see how enjoyable music is.

  1. Take your children to a gig when they are a little older.

    Go to music concerts especially made for kids. Many top and local artists will throw an occasional show at which they do numbers for kids. Some musicians always play for kids. Look online and in local papers for events.

    Go to open air and outdoor musical festivals. Children love the freedom of being able to run about freely while music is playing all the time. Take along a rug, a picnic, some toys and make a day of it.
     
    Encourage Your Children to Attend Music Lessons Step 2Bullet3.jpg

     

    Integrate music and craft. Have children make their instruments first, then prepare a tune on them together afterward.

     

     

    Encourage Your Children to Attend Music Lessons Step 2Bullet4.jpg

     

    Teach your children about some of the most inspiring musicians of all time like Bob Dylan; play music from your top favorite artists of the past through to the present, to help give them a broad grounding in many types of music.

     

     

    Encourage Your Children to Attend Music Lessons Step 2Bullet5.jpg

     

    Include classical music experiences with fun activities like playing a board game (without lyrics, it won't interfere with thinking) or when you're all resting together as a family.

Encourage Your Children to Attend Music Lessons Step 3.jpg

 

Bring music into your children's lives very early on. If you leave it late, they may struggle to get involved with music or may be less interested in just enjoying listening to it.

Make use of technology such as MP3 players, tablets and the like to play music anywhere, from a picnic to bath time. The portability of music has never been easier––imagine what people from the past would think about our ability to carry entire orchestras around with us whenever we wish!
