Inspired by neurological research linking music and cognitive development, MATB is the experience of what studies are telling us; When children receive sequential music instruction, it can impact their proficiency in language, reading, math and cognition.

The MATB program is granted to qualifying public schools and includes invaluable teacher training, piano books, keyboards, recordings and rhythm cards for successful classroom piano study.  Our comprehensive curriculum was designed for all levels, particularly K-5th grade.

With participating schools throughout N.Y.C., New Orleans, Ferguson (MO)  and beyond, more than 45,000 students receive Music and the Brain lessons each year.
