Young people should have an education that gives them the opportunity for a wide variety of learning experiences. Music provides a unique avenue to the imaginative and affective aspects of life and their contribution to our cultural heritage. Young people play, sing, move, compose, and listen to music through participation in the music program.
Music is one of the most effective ways to hone 21st Century skills (Communication, Creativity, Collaboration and Critical Thinking). Brain research reveals that making music engages almost 90% of brain capacity. There is no comparable activity that a child can engage in that activates nearly the entire cerebral cortex. Rehearsing and performing music gives students the competitive edge.
