The importance of music education for schools – video from Children’s Music Workshop, LA

This 4m video by the Children’s Music Workshop in Los Angeles, California, presents a powerful argument for the importance of music in the school curriculum.

School music classes have been shown to be the key to opening a child’s mind to not only the joy and thrill of making music, but music is a conduit to understanding scientific concepts, improving maths skills and developing reading and listening skills.

Active music making enhances a child’s enthusiasm for school and stimulates her or his vivid imagination. Only when music education is part of the curriculum is a school making its commitment to provide the opportunity for each child to develop her or his full potential.
