Happy New Year! It was an amazing year here at Big Beat Music. Many new students; our school spotlighted in the news and so many great accomplishments from all of our students both old and new! Our one-of-a-kind Annual Showcase date will be announced soon! I have had the fun and exciting honor of working with the talented recording star, Jesse Kinch. Check him out! From video shoots on a NYC rooftop to playing for the record company in Nashville ~ it’s been a blast! Keep an eye out for the first video release February 16th! Until next time, remember to Keep on Jammin!

Our Rock Star Achievement Program Continues to Inspire!

Rock Star Achievement Program

Big Beat Studio - Rock Star Achievement Program

Rock Star Achievement Program

It is a proven system that helps students get excited about music and helps keep parents ‘informed’ as to how they are progressing. Similar to karate belt tests, every few months or so teachers will evaluate their students. As they progress they will receive one of these really cool wristbands for their level. They will also get trophies and other awards at certain levels as part of the “Merit System” we have already had in place. This type of program has been proven to inspire students, bring a smile to parents’ faces and we all feel proud of the progress being made!

That Studying Music Boosts Academic Achievement in High Schoolers?
Early exposure to music increases the plasticity of the brain helping to motivate the human brain’s capacity in such a way that it responds readily to learning, changing and growing. “UCLA professor James S. Catterall analyzed the academic achievement of 6,500 students. He found that, by the time these students were in the 10th grade, 41.4% of those who had taken arts courses scored in the top half on standardized tests, contrasted with only 25% of those who had minimal arts experience. The arts students also were better readers and watched less television.” This goes to show that in the formative stages of life, kids who study music do much better in school..
