20 Reasons Why Music is an Important Part of Education
Have you ever heard a song that you just can’t get out of your head? Has a song ever brought back a distinct memory? Has music ever moved you to tears or pure joy? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, then you already understand the power and impact that music carries!
Music is a universal language that we can ALL learn to speak. It has no boundaries and no opinions. Music has the ability to change the way we feel, the way we speak, and the way we communicate. All instructors at Tallant Music Studio are passionate about guiding our students through life with music as an educational tool. There have been many studies that show that those who study music at an early age are better equipped for college and for their careers, regardless whether that career is in music. For example, the number one major behind STEM in Medical Schools is music!
Check out this excerpt from The National Association of Music Education below to see just how beneficial musical training is. You can check out the full article here.
1. Musical training helps develop language and reasoning: Students who have early musical training will develop the areas of the brain related to language and reasoning. The left side of the brain is better developed with music, and songs can help imprint information on young minds.
2. A mastery of memorization: Even when performing with sheet music, student musicians are constantly using their memory to perform. The skill of memorization can serve students well in education and beyond.
3. Students learn to improve their work: Learning music promotes craftsmanship, and students learn to want to create good work instead of mediocre work. This desire can be applied to all subjects of study.
4. Increased coordination: Students who practice with musical instruments can improve their hand-eye coordination. Just like playing sports, children can develop motor skills when playing music.
5. A sense of achievement: Learning to play pieces of music on a new instrument can be a challenging, but achievable goal. Students who master even the smallest goal in music will be able to feel proud of their achievement.
6. Kids stay engaged in school: An enjoyable subject like music can keep kids interested and engaged in school. Student musicians are likely to stay in school to achieve in other subjects.
