    A:  Your child will do just fine!  There are MANY research studies on the effect of pull-out music lessons on academic performance.  Overwhelmingly, students who receive music lessons in school do just as well if not better than those who do not study an instrument, for many reasons. If a test conflicts with a lesson, the student can see Mrs. Regan to rearrange the lesson time.
