Want Smarter Kids? Teach Music, Not Coding

Social-Emotional Learning at the Vancouver Waldorf School. Children working together to build a garden box.

The latest neuroscience shows that learning a musical instrument increases brainpower

New studies from MIT and the University of Zurich show that when it comes to teaching kids, it’s music, not coding, that actually has long-term transferable developmental, cognitive and academic benefits. Music education is a core part of our curriculum in every grade at the Vancouver Waldorf School.

We have a rolling admissions policy and accept students throughout the year when space is available. We are currently accepting applications. Join an information session or meet individually with our Admissions Coordinator to learn more about the Vancouver Waldorf School.
