LIFETIME MUSIC ACADEMY
MUSIC FOR THE COMMUNITY'S MIND
Aliso Viejo, CA (Orange County) -- (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE via PRNetwire) -- August 19, 2002 -- At Lifetime Music Academy (LMA), young and old alike can discover their creative potentials through the innovative teaching methods being developed. After a successful soft opening this summer, LMA is preparing to officially open its doors to the local South Orange County community for the fall semester.
Council Member and Former Mayor Cassie DeYoung says, "Our community has needed something like this for years. Doing Yoga and Tai Chi before the music lessons is a brilliant idea… Impressive!"
Lifetime Music Academy is housed in an impressive 5000-sq/ft facility which includes ten private teaching studios, a large recital hall, two pre-K group classes, a practice lab full of digital pianos (with headphones for the timid student), and a comfortable central waiting area where parents and family can relax during their loved ones' lessons. The students also get to relax with specialized focusing sessions using techniques from Yoga and Tai Chi before each lesson courtesy of the Irvine Dahn Center. And after each lesson, students get a quick cool-down session to help retain information and motivate them for the next week.
A wonderful opportunity to meet the teachers of Lifetime Music Academy and to see the beautiful environment is to come to LMA's official Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, August 24th from 11:00am to 3:00pm where the entire family can enjoy performances by the teachers, get a free "mini-lesson", take advantage of special tuition rates, and enjoy a special kids concert by the talented Mark Beckwith at 1:00pm. (free for all, concert aimed at kids 4 through 10). LMA is located on 120 Columbia St Suite 150 in Aliso Viejo, 92656 next to the 73 freeway.
The founders of LMA had the motive and the means to create a center designed for the community's creative needs during a time in which these beneficial learning opportunities are rare…especially in the public school systems. Even though countless research studies prove music to have an unparalleled impact on ones' learning abilities, it seems to be the first program to go in the public school system when money is tight. Until the politics can catch up with the research evidence, it seems that many children will continue to be denied easy access to music programs; LMA is attempting to make some of those programs more accessible.
Lifetime Music Academy's comfortable, non-competitive environment gives all students the chance to actively pursue their creative goals in their own unique manner without the emphasis on competition or perfection. LMA's highly talented and qualified staff of instructors all aim to bring out a students individuality; and due to the number of instructors who call LMA their home, there will never be a problem finding the perfect match for all of the individual students who wish to call Lifetime Music Academy their home as well.
Music education is an ideal source to foster creativity, sensitivity, confidence, individuality, and commitment. Music enhances higher thinking, keeps the mind active and young, decreases anxiety, increases happiness, and sparks a love for learning that will never cease.
"Music gives a soul to the universe,
Wings to the mind,
Flight to the imagination,
And life to everything."
