The Shoreline School of Art and Music, est.1978, is a staple in Connecticut.


I love the way you talk to and teach my son. He doesn`t complain about “reviewing” at home and he enjoys coming for his lesson. 


In an interview, one of the researchers from the University of California said: Music training jump starts certain inherent patterns in parts of the brain responsible for spatial-temporal reasoning. Computer, on the other hand, does not force children to think ahead or visualize as they must when playing a piece of music. 


We welcome children and adults in the pursuit of the highest outcome possible.
