WITH ALL OF THE  ACTIVITIES COMPETING FOR OUR TIME WHY IS MUSIC SO OFTEN CHOSEN?

Why Music?
  • Music has been called the universal language.

  • It can and does help to promote understanding where written language falls short.

  • Music can soothe emotions, heal us and excite our enthusiasm.

  • We now know from actual research that active participation, even active listening, can have positive effects in many other areas of learning.

  • The study of music can provide a means of lifelong, not temporary, enjoyment.

  • A competent and effective teacher of music has to be capable of helping the student develop themselves beyond the basic skills of note reading, rhythm patterns and producing sounds.

  • Among the other areas influenced and reinforced by music study are: persistence, determination, perseverance, self-discipline, problem solving, goal setting, time management, pattern recognition, math relationships, spatial reasoning, hand to eye coordination, simple enjoyment, and a very special way to express our most complex emotions.
