The Benefits of The Study of Music: Why We Need Music Education In Our Schools

Research indicates the study of music helps students achieve success in society, success in school and learning, success in developing intelligence and success in life. This new brochure from MENC: The National Association for Music Education captures the latest facets and viewpoints from science and industry regarding music education’s impact on student growth and achievement. “Every student in the nation should have an education in the arts.” This is the opening statement of “The Value and

Quality of Arts Education: A Statement of Principles,” a document from the nation’s ten most important educational organizations, including the American Association of School Administrators, the National Education Association, the

National Parent Teacher Association, and the National School Boards Association. The basic statement is unlikely to be challenged by anyone involved in education. In the harsh reality of limited time and funding for instruction, however, the inclusion of the arts in every student’s education is sometimes relegated to a distant wish rather than an exciting reality.
