“We cannot build the future for our youth—but we can build our youth for the future.”
-Franklin D. Roosevelt
Music education provides students the opportunity to develop skills needed to be successful both in life and at work. Music provides students with opportunities to develop foundational skills, including those that promote social and emotional well-being, a sense of responsibility, strong character, adaptability, and a strong work ethic. Music awakens students’ curiosity, initiative, persistence, and leadership, as well as social and cultural awareness.
Not only does music teach skills from within the music curriculum, but it extends to those skills taught in other disciplines. Yes, the music itself is important, but the lessons students learn while being involved in a music program are of equal importance. We often hear of the importance of supporting students in the development of 21st century skills. Skills at the top of many hiring manager lists include leadership, working collaboratively, being able to make decisions and solve problems, communicating effectively with people inside and outside the organization, and planning, organizing and prioritizing work.
From our youngest learner to our budding virtuosos, WeMusic is dedicated to building correlations between music education essential skills required for success. Our programs are designed to move music education from ancillary to essential for 21st century learning and success. We are committed to helping our students connect learning with real life and to provide them with the necessary skills to prepare them for meaningful leadership.
If we seize this moment and work together, our children will be our most valuable assets to compete in our new normal.
Music is a powerful vehicle to broaden and further the education of your child and their future success.

Reimagined Music Education
WeMusic creates a learning community centered around music where students develop intellectual, technical and social competencies through their engagement in music education. At the core of student instruction, WeMusic emphasizes the importance of a growth mindset encouraged with continuous reflection, self-critique, and positive, constructive critique on the part of our teachers. Increased competency on their instruments is attributed to focused, consistent work, and supportive guidance rather than the idea of intrinsic talent.
The following competencies in WeMusic Instruction form the basis of
our students' emerging identities as strong, empowered learners.
Learning how to practice
Problem solving skills
Confidence/ Leadership skills
