By helping underwrite the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance’s children’s education offerings, your business is making an investment in the Miami Valley’s future. All DPAA education programs make our region’s schools stronger by enhancing children’s ability to learn their classroom subjects through music education. According to The College Entrance Examination Board, children who receive music education at an early age score higher on standardized tests such as the SAT and reading proficiency exams because early sensory and motor development influences later cognitive, perception and language skills.
