Why children should study music…..the bottom line
- Students who study an instrument have higher overall grade point averages in high school and score 21-38 points higher on Scholastic Aptitude Tests (SATs) than other students.
- There is a high correlation between positive self-perception, high cognitive competence test scores, self-esteem and music study.
- Music experiences instill positive attitudes and a desire to achieve excellence. Other skills music study grows include the ability to set goals, attention to detail and internal motivation.
- Children raised in cultures rich with music tend to develop learning and communication skills more quickly than other children.
- Students participating in music study outperform non-music students on achievement tests in reading and math. These differences become greater the longer the student studies an instrument
- Children learn to reach for their very best. Solo performance is connected to self-esteem and self-efficiency.
