Ignite The Spark Contest

What is Ignite The Spark?

Music is powerful. The brain’s limbic system, which is involved in processing emotions and controlling memory, “lights” up when we just hear music. Being exposed to music education, especially at a young age, has lifelong benefits, unparalleled by any other type of learning.

The goal of our Ignite the Spark contest is for our students to complete fun and engaging tasks that represent our values and encourage practice. All month long they will delve into their creativity by writing songs, build courage as they learn ways to conquer stage fright, create lifelong bonds with other students and experience unique opportunities to explore and discover what makes them excited about music. To Ignite their musical spark!
