Learning about music offers a wide range of benefits that impact various aspects of an individual’s life. Here at ALP Nuneaton we thoroughly enjoy exploring different types of musical genres. We have even written our very own ALP School song which we are happy to perform for all our ALP friends. Music has a profound impact on cognitive, emotional, social and physical aspects of an individual’s life. Here are some of the benefits music has to offer.
