The Power of Live Music

Scirocco Winds, Houston’s Premiere Woodwind Quintet, will deliver a life changing experience to YOUR students with a live performance! 


Did you know listening to music can help to increase children’s IQ?

Online journal Brain on September 20, 2006 states “musically trained children performed better in a memory test that is correlated with general intelligence skills such as literacy, verbal memory, visiospatial processing, mathematics and IQ.” 


But kids are not interested in music…

“… music being played right in front of my face. It was so powerful, so magnetic. I'll never forget it.”


The 53rd Grammy award recipient, Esperanza Spalding, was inspired to start playing her instrument after a group of musicians came to her school when she was a kid. She says, "It's something that stays with you forever.”
