Have the government forgot about the Detroit public schools? Public schools of Detroit are under very poor condition; Spain Elementary/Middle School is an example of this misfortune. This particular school is facing problems such as, missing books, unavailability to use the gymnasium as well playground, or missing out on music lessons due the lack of terminating the musician teacher.

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
We’ve all heard it: the strong academic record, proficient in three sports, president of a few clubs, vibrant social life, and still getting at least 7 hours of sleep every night. The idealistic belief of a student, a goal to continuously strive towards. As students in a stressful, sometimes competitive atmosphere, we evaluate ourselves often and notice our flaws, but often miss our strengths. The idea of an idyllic description of the proper student forces down the general individualism often treasured in a learning environment. Rather than pushing down a student’s personal identity, it is necessary to express yourself and be your true self in public.
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.
According to Daniel Levitin, a cognitive psychologist and neurologist, humans can recognize songs in any pitch (“Interview”). This means if “Mary Had a Little Lamb” is played with a different set of notes; humans would still recognize the song. If songs with only the same rhythm are so recognizable, does this mean music is more important to humans than believed? Music is built into the human mind and music has multiple physical and cognitive effects.

The time that I have spent in the music program at Benicia High School have been some of the most emotional, stressful, and rewarding experiences I have ever had, and I cherish every day that I spend with my peers. When I joined, I was oblivious as to what I was getting myself into. I glared with prejudice as nearly one-hundred people, all lined up in a perfect square, screamed with excitement towards me, a naive, inexperienced, and malleable child.
I believe that being actively involved in a music program is a very important part to intellectual development. I am a very accomplished cellist who plays for the Columbus Symphony youth orchestra, and am also a member of the marching band's color guard. My experience in the music program at my high school benefited me in many ways. Personality wise, I grew confidence preforming as a cellist in front of other people. My achievements in the music program gave me a sense of accomplishment, and kept me engaged in school. I consider myself more intellectually and emotionally developed than my peers because being involved in the music program gave me empathy towards other cultures. Because of the music program, my self esteem increased, and my
One problem in today 's students is that they have lost of stress that builds up after a while. This makes them frustrated with themselves and need to relace it somewhere , and what better way to deposit that frustration in a positive way then music.

While music is an experience that many people would claim to enjoy, not all of them would be motivated to study music or pursue a related career. Every person has specific extrinsic and intrinsic motivators that may or may not be strong and continuous enough to transform the state of enjoying music to studying it as an elective or partaking in its industry someday. To understand learning motivation, Eccles and her peers (1993) created two theoretical achievement frameworks on motivation and parental predictors of adolescent achievement-based behaviors (as cited in Simpkins, Fredricks, & Eccles, 2012, p. 1019). From their study, they developed the Eccles’ expectancy-value model which states that: (1) the belief of parents about a certain domain
