Succeed in Music, Succeed in Life?

There are many positive reasons to study music. Immediate rewards and accomplishments develop into life-long benefits for all.  

For the young student, preparation for success begins with discovery and exploration. Acquiring new skills in music builds confidence. Practicing builds fine motor coordination and teaches problem solving. If lessons are taken to play music in groups, additional benefits include the ability to lead, the willingness to follow, self-discipline and a keen sense of timing. All of these experiences are essential for successes in school, business and in family life. Young people benefit as music lessons can prepare them for success in future endeavors.

For the older student, enjoyment is inevitable. Music challenges higher levels of creativity, imagination, dexterity while preserving quickness of mind and expanding expression. Learning is never-ending and music provides a wide array of the most inspiring opportunities.

What People Are Saying

"When I ask myself how I became such a developed musician at such a young age, and why I am where I am today, the only answer is Vaughan Music Studios. I always loved music, but it wasn’t until I started working with Cindy that music started becoming a possible career choice instead of just a dream. Before I started at VMS, I could barely play 4 cover songs. Now I have a whole repertoire of original songs, recordings, a developed voice, many connections in the music industry, performing experience, and most importantly, I have confidence that a career in music is possible for me. Thank you Cindy, Mark, and everyone else at VMS for believing in me." - Meaghan Campbell VMS Student, Recording Client NSAI Songwriting Contest Finalist 2014
"I've now not only been taking voice lessons from them, but also drum, guitar, and ear training lessons, and am completely satisfied by the quality of instruction, the facility itself, and the friendliness of the staff. Columbus is fortunate to be able to claim a resource such as this one." - Zain K.
"I had the pleasure of touring the music lessons spaces, performance hall, and studio at Vaughan, with Cindy Vaughan, who owns and manages the ins and outs. Her vision for this music school is all-encompassing, backed by years of experience, and equipped with the best gear in the land. Lookout for this place in the future- as it seems likely to become a staple in Columbus' music education and music scene as a whole." - Joey H.
