In an enjoyable demonstration and provocative presentation, Artistic Director, Wanda Cook will uncover the mysteries of how meaningful music education increases a child’s ability to flourish. By conjoining statistical studies with real-life demonstration participants will learn about how cognition, social intelligence, and artistic capacity create what is known as the OPERA Hypothesis* or “musicians’ advantage”.
