Studies have long shown that exposing youngsters to classical music has positive effects. Children who study this subject develop an ability to think creatively and to solve problems by imagining various solutions, thinking "out of the box." Orchestra members develop teamwork skills and discipline, come to value craftsmanship and excellence and learn to conquer fear and to take risks. Music also provides children with a means of self-expression and gives them a glimpse of other cultures.
