Inspire Me Learning Academy’s mission is to help our students by sharing the joy of learning and providing the highest quality education at the lowest possible prices. We teach many subjects, including reading, math, science, study skills, and standardized test preparation, as well as private music lessons in all instruments and voice.
Academically, our teachers help students who have either fallen behind or need to fill in some of the missing building blocks in their foundational skills, while also challenging those students who want to move ahead. We find nothing more rewarding than helping students to realize that they can now understand concepts that they had once given up on. This, in turn, helps them to find the confidence they need to move forward. We have seen countless students, once they get the help they need, start to love the very subjects that they had disliked or even dreaded.
Music lessons are a major part of the programs we offer. While we teach theory, technique, and reading music to all of our music students, we go beyond this, seeking to uncover the student’s interests, passion and creativity. Learning to play an instrument is fun, but, more than that, science has shown that actively learning to play an instrument is also great for developing the brain and can help a child’s academic achievement. Nina Kraus, director of Northwestern University’s Academic Neuroscience Laboratory has said, “Making music matters, because it is only through the active generation and making of sound that music can rewire the brain.” She also says, “Find the kind of music they love, good teachers, an instrument they like. Making music should be something that children enjoy and will want to keep doing for many years.”
