Data On Our Program

Children who study music gain skills that affect their mental, physical, and social well-being: test scores improve, as well as language & reasoning abilities, spatial intelligence, coordination, teamwork skills, and more. Unfortunately, budget cuts have forced many low-income schools to drop elementary school music programs. zSharp fills the gap, offering children the benefits of music education, with dramatic improvements in reading, math scores & attendance rates.
