As a result, students understand the importance of working hard: “There’s nothing like music to teach you that eventually if you work hard enough, it does get better. ” (Lipman). When students become adults, they are more likely to achieve their goal because they are used to working hard and getting through obstacles. While music training does takes a lot of time and dedications, the skills they learn from music training are beneficial for them both in short term and in the long run. With music training, students are more likely to become better collaborator and are more willing to get through obstacles, and many other different skills that are not mentioned. Music programs should not be neglected during one’s education, but instead should be encouraged. The next time when there’s a musical event, encourage the students and support the music programs in school. After all, music education is not simply just about music; it is also a medium to learn to be a better
Despite all humans having their own set of genes, DNA and personality traits it has been proven that making certain life choices can enhance the brains activity. One way in particular is using music to improve your memory by studying while listening to music. Another way is being musically trained which does boost your memory and learning skills in particular your memory in music. Two separate classes of year 11’s students were asked to conduct an experiment to prove that you can remember more if you heard the song over it being spoken you would recall it better with the underlying factor of some students being musically trained while others weren’t.
Music teaches skills that you use in school and in work. Music teaches discipline. When learning a new song you have to work on the hard parts over and over to get them right. You also have to listen to the band director. It also teaches perseverance because you can’t give up if you are learning to play an instrument or else you will never become good. Lastly music teaches team skills. You have to know when you need to take the solo and when to be the accompaniment. All of these skills
As well as being a form of expression it has also been linked to helping with boosting one’s self-confidence and motivation inside and outside the classroom. A student getting involved in art programs, drama clubs, or music programs are activating and stimulating a part of the brain that correspond with retaining information which can be a benefiting factor in helping other subjects. Studies have shown that kids who listened to music such as Mozart had a higher IQ than kids who did not. Study after study proves that the arts have been linked to helping develop a young mind and can be used for so much more than a way for someone to express their feelings. It has been proven that countries such as Japan, Netherlands, and Hungary who require all
Sacks explains the significant effects of exposing children to music early in their lives (“Importance”). If children are exposed to music and understand music sooner, they will experience the cognitive and physical effects much earlier. These effects include the release of dopamine, prolactin and oxytocin. Also, strengthened reading skills, memory, and attentiveness. This can help students academically and in everyday life. Lastly, music uses many parts of the brain while listening or playing. No other activity or sport causes the brain to work use so many areas at one time (Sacks, “How
Another example can be seen by Sharon Begley’s July 24 issue of Science and Technology in which she stated that listening to music starting at a young age helps a child do better in math and science. Again, others might claim that music education in school is a “waste of money and time”. This statement can be contradicted by researcher MIT professor Jeanne Bamberge. Bamberge claims that because of music, children are able to listen and learn better and faster than those who aren’t blessed with music educations. In addition, music increases students’ abilities to listen and learn. Martin Gardiner at the Center for the Study of Human Development at Brown university reported a connection between early language skills and musical ability. Giving children education in music as young as possible can help them to have the ability to be successful in learning language. In another study done by Columbia University, it demonstrated that students who participate in the music are usually more cooperative with teachers and peers, have more self-confidence, and are better able to express themselves. Moreover, the social benefits of music education can continue throughout a student’s life in ways one would never suspect. An example of this would be that “students who participate in school band or orchestra have the lowest levels of current and lifelong use of alcohol,
According to Johns Hopkins School of Education’s website, bringing in music to a classroom could result in altering one’s brain wave, a higher level of concentration, and increased attention and imagination (Brewer 1995). These are very similar to the positive outcomes that Romick discussed in his article that he noticed occurring in his classroom after creating lesson plans correlated with songs. Also similar to Romick’s beliefs, Chris Boyd Brewer states, “Music will activate students mentally, physically, and emotionally and create learning states which enhance understanding of learning,” which will not only benefit the teacher, but also the student while gaining a greater knowledge in the class (Brewer 1995). The music helps create different feelings to emerge, inspiring creativity and a different outlook than simple textbook related material. Another well given point I found that was stated by another ELA teacher, Heather Wolpert-Gawron, was that music enhances the brain and inspires great writing prompts or poetry connections, similar to what Romick referred to as well (Gawron
Studies have shown that learning how to read and play music, and even listening to music has an impact on the development of the brain. Music requires the use of both the left and right sides of the brain. After learning music I have noticed a change in the way I view music, my social skills and my thought processes. All of these things I believe are at least partially because of being in band and, they have all changed my life for the better
It is extremely irritating when people do not recognize all the sports that are out there. Sure, there are a lot of them but if we can consider cheerleading a sport then I think that we can call marching band a sport. People do not understand why I am so easily annoyed when they diss this great sport.
In our present day and age many people now listen to music while doing a number of various activities. There is a big debate whether listening to music benefits you and helps you to concentrate and focus especially while studying. I researched whether listening to music helps you concentrate and focus.
“Music can change the world because it can change people, (Bono)” The inevitable truth is music has a way of impacting the lives of those who hear it. However, another undeniable fact is that music programs are constantly on the chopping block whenever education budgets are lowered. The question that is constantly asked is, “why”. No one has ever said, “Music is pointless, getting rid of it would be best,” in fact finding an article speaking out in favor of cutting music programs is an impossibility. The answer is simple, all that seemingly matters in modern schools is sports and the scores earned on standardized testing, so that is where the budget is spent. However, cutting music programs has negative effects on music educators, current
Using "The Preschool and Kindergarten children 's performance scale" the children 's development was measured (Al-Batch, M., 2001). Results showed significant differences in social, cognitive and physical development preferring the children in the experimental group, this suggests that music can create a more relaxed learning

Whipple (2004) conducted a meta-analysis of nine quantitative studies comparing music and no music situations with children and adolescents with ASD. The analysis included music use in any forms during the intervention, such as background music and music use in conjunction with other interventions. The study resulted in an overall effect size of d = .77 and a mean weighted correlation of r = .36 (p = .00). The researchers concluded that music was effective as an intervention irrespective of the purpose or implementation. However, Whipple's review could account for music use in any form but did not look at music therapy as a solitary intervention. In addition, this review relied heavily on unpublished manuscripts and only three studies included
People say that spending money on arts in education is a waste of resources. This article states, “The academic benefits of art education are unproven”(See). Although, there are many examples and observations of art improving the education of a child and helping them to focus their attention to the task at hand. It is also stated, “Listening to music, however, does not seem to have a positive impact. Or at least there is no evidence to suggest that it does. Some studies showed that people who listened to classical music performed worse in memory tests than those who didn’t” (See). We do know that some children and adults seem to be calmer and more engaged when music is incorporated into learning. People feel that this does impact the individual. Some people do not believe that arts in education are beneficial, but others feel that they are very monumental is
