4. What are the top classes that Further Music School offers? Why do you think most parents enroll their kids in these classes?
Wow, it is very difficult to choose! Most of our music lessons are very popular among students and due to high volume students are put on our waiting list. But, if we had to choose, I would say it’s our private music lessons.

Parents enroll their kids in private music lessons due to recognizing the qualified music lessons they will receive and the fast progress students will make in these private music lessons.

The best age to start music lessons should be 4-5 years old. Students will greatly improve in their concentration and develop an understanding level by that age. In this age period, music wires a child’s brain to help him/her better understand other areas of math, reading, and listening.

In the past years, Forest Hills neighborhood attracted various regional residents to move to here. This led to more and more businesses being founded.
