Studies have linked active music making with better language and math ability, improved school grades and better-adjusted social behavior yet budget cuts are emptying music classrooms
There are hundreds of quotations and statements that support the fact that the benefits of a music education are beyond measure. The Salvation Army worldwide is synonymous with excellence in music and Crescendo Music and Dance is a part of the Salvation Army Community Program in Torrance and for some while we have had a mission and vision that a music and dance education should be accessible and affordable for everybody, irrespective of age and income. We have constructed a beautiful music and dance facility on Emerald Street in Torrance that is a safe, friendly and modern and a great place to either commence a musical journey or carry on where you may have left off many years ago. We have professional music instructors in Dance, Brass, Woodwind, Strings, Percussion, Guitar, Vocal... in fact every aspect of music that you would choose to learn. All keyboard and piano classes are taught on our brand new Yamaha pianos. We offer dance classes, private lessons, shared lessons and group lessons all at competitive rates. There will be opportunities to put what you have learned into practice by performing at our regular ‘open’ concerts. As well as regular lessons that will follow the school semester, there will be a series of activities that will run throughout the summer. There will also be an opportunity to either sing or play in a larger group such as Kids choir, Adult community choir, Brass band, Wind band etc. Crescendo Music and Dance is an exciting place to be and we would love you to share with us on a musical journey that will last a lifetime.
