Mr. Michael Rodgers
Director of Music and Performing Arts
“All over the world, the study of a musical instrument is recognized as an integral component of a child’s education. The reason for this is simple: Learning to play an instrument teaches us how to teach ourselves! It was recently observed that in the think tanks of Silicon Valley, where the next wave of innovation is being nurtured, almost all of the participants are practicing musicians. Playing a music instrument helps take our thought processes to the next level.”
