Music is about communication, creativity and cooperation. By studying music in school, students have the opportunity to build on these skills, enrich their lives and experience the world from a new perspective.
So, why do we need music in school? Well, because music is everything.
Music is science. It is exact and demands acoustics. Music is math. It is based on the rhythmic subdivisions of time, done in a split second. Music is history. The music you hear or play is usually an indication of the time and environment in which it was created. Music is physical education. It requires an immense amount of coordination of fingers, hands, arms, lips, cheeks and facial muscles. Music is a foreign language. Its terms are usually in Italian and the music is not in any language known to man. It is its own language and uses symbols to represent ideas.Music is the universal language that everyone understands and can relate to. Music is what brings everything together. It is something that everyone knows. Most of all, music is art. It is the greatest form of art that allows a human to take boring notes on a page, and transform them into an emotion and feeling you cannot measure. Music actually improves communication between the right and left sides of the brain, allowing you to gain better comprehension and memorization skills.
