Music education has major benefits for children
Music can positively shape the rest of a child’s life. Studies show music education in a young child’s life can:
- Accelerate brain development
- Enhance language acquisition and reading skills
- Increase a child’s ability to focus
- Lead to improved learning and grades later in life4
- Contribute to enhanced pre-reading ability5
- According to the Musical Education Department at Rowan University, early childhood is the
most critical period in a child’s musical growth.6
Quality education programs for kids are in high demand
Recent studies have shown that with growing numbers of parents working outside the home, most children under five years old receive child care from someone other than a parent. Almost one-quarter (23.4%) of children under the age of five are in some form of organized child care arrangement, including day care centers, nurseries, and preschools.1 So it’s no surprise that the child day care market rakes in $48 Billion in revenues on an annual basis.2
The parental outsourcing industry (e.g., child care, coaching, and tutoring) recently reached nearly $55 billion – with ample opportunity for small businesses and entrepreneurs.3
My Music Workshop capitalizes on these trends and responds to the increasing demand for quality preschool supplemental education programs. You can provide valuable musical educational to the growing number of children in preschool settings, meet parents’ demand for educational services they seek for their children – and ultimately position your business for sustained growth.
I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.
Music, Kids, Your Own Business and Fun. What could be better!
No other children's education franchise program offers a flexible, streamlined and truly original business model like My Music Workshop®. And with the tools and support your receive, you can quickly build your business – in your own protected territory!
