MUSICSTAR® education programs are specifically designed to appeal to students of varying ages, while fully exploring the power of music education and its positive effects on students’ academic achievement, social and mental development. Curriculum plans for MUSICSTAR® programs are based on extensive classroom research and are aligned with national content in education standards.
MUSICSTAR® has huge benefits for schools, as no instruments, curriculum, books, accessories and consumables need to be purchased and maintained. This results in huge cost savings for schools and districts!
Music programs are popular and increase a school program's standing with parents. A 2009 Gallup Poll shows that more than 95% of parents want schools to offer Music Education! MUSICSTAR® can help schools offer comprehensive and lavish music programs at a fraction of the cost!
Music programs, and in particular MUSICSTAR® programs, have shown to increase student attendance in school and after-school and reduce student drop-out rates! So, schools also benefit from students attending school more regularly, as 95% of music class participants agree that playing music is fun!
