Why Is Music Education Important For Children? 

The Rock Dojo team is dedicated to helping children on the path to rock n’ roll! Parents, as summer comes to an end and your attention turns back to your child’s education, we urge you to consider the importance of music education and the role it can play in helping your child to grow. While rockin’ out on the guitar is lots of fun, fun isn’t all guitar playing as to offer your child!

Angus Clark Interview: What Music Has To Offer Kids 

Angus Clark is the lead guitarist for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, has performed with several well-known musicians, and has performed regularly on Broadway. To top it all off, he is also a music educator – which makes him the perfect candidate for talking about how music education can benefit kids. When asked about what music has to offer kids, he spoke of his own experiences. 

“Music created this whole space for me to explore my feelings about things. As it became something that I knew how to do. It became a lot about how I put myself out into the world.”
