At Language Rhythm Academy we take children's music instruction one step further; we put music on an equal footing with spoken languages. We consider music to be a complete language. This perspective comes from music traditions, such as jazz, where a complete emotive grammar and syntax has been developed. Just as we use music to assist in language acquisition, we reverse the approach and piggyback music acquisition on the spoken languages. 

This bi-directional, spoken/non-spoken, verbal/non-verbal approach we call Integrative Fluency. We believe this unique type of fluency will lay the groundwork in young minds for especially expansive higher-order thinking. Your child not only enjoys the lifelong benefits of these linguistic skills but also starts developing a broader cultural awareness with the ability to understand, respond to and help shape 21st-century communities. This capacity will serve them well as they mature.
