Music Program


What Happens When the Music Stops?

Silence: silence is the absence of any sound. It is also the state of being forgotten.

Studies show that music leads to an increased IQ, improved memory, language, sound discrimination and fine motor skills, increased sensory integration and spatial-temporal skillks used in engineering, math, art, computers, and architecture, and dramatically higher levels of self-confidence. Music is also the strongest tie humans have to our shared culture and history.  

How can you help? Become a patron of the Music Program at Florida Tech. Your patronage will help provide new music, instruments, equipment, and provide the opportunity to host guest artists to enrich our program.
