At first I assumed it was not the correct choice for me, but then I got a feel for it and realized how inspiring and life eventful it is. I chose orchestra as my educational activity because it gives you the ability to show off and gain important skills, benefits your body, and teaches you valuable lessons about teamwork. One reason I chose to join orchestra because, it teaches you useful skills,and every so often, tests you on those skills, which can help you in the long run. For example, in an orchestra learn to do things many people can’t. You learn all different types of important skills like how to read sheet music, how to multitask, gain impressive hand-eye coordination, and how to cooperate with people.
Because music is such a beneficial opportunity it would be wrong to not provide that opportunity to every student. Without the fine arts department the mathematics department and the English department would see drastically decreased test scores. Having a music department is nothing but benefit both the school and the students
Students who study music outperform their non-music peers in assessments of math, and the advantage that music provides increases over time. These findings hold true regardless of socio-economic status and race/ethnicity (Baker, 2011). Additionally, It is believed that music education enhances student motivation. This is explained by their sense of accomplishment by learning musical instruments, which allows them to build confidence to perform better within group activities (Caterall, 2012). On the other hand, schools have the benefit of investing more in other fields such as sports and recreation.
The transformative power of classical music was well implemented and very convincing. The main goal of the video was the idea that classical music is for everyone. In a proper framework when it is introduced, individually everyone should be able to relate the emotions that classical music reveals within their lives. In between the presentation, while he played a portion of classical music, he requested the audience to think of someone who they loved that had already passed away. This was to attract the audience into his message and it made them deeply experience the emotions that exist within the classical music.
5 Scientific Research Studies That Underscore Music Education's Influence on Verbal And Reading Skills Description - Listening to a song on repeat is how many of us remember those beautiful, powerful, sometimes meaningless lyrics. At least that’s the common belief. Perhaps it’s the other way around; music improved memory and hence its easy to remember the lyrics. 'Music makes you smarter 'is the ultimate quote to live by. For all those music lovers out there who would rather spend their time playing an instrument than sit down to complete boring school work, here are five scientific research studies that provide strong insight into the positive influence of music education on verbal skills, verbal memory and reading skills.
Let us not forget that music plays a major role in math, memory, and motor function. To say the least music is monumentally crucial to the education of students. To say that music is not essential to education would obviously be blasphemous to say. Other than the reasons that have already been listed music teaches math, memorization, and brings joy into the world that other classes would fail
In essence, music is the index of humanity which allows the audience to reach new heights in understanding music. My first classical concert held at the Organ Recital Hall was composed of a series of magnificent expositions. The first group, a musical ensemble, performed samples from Italian composer Pietro Locatelli. In the beginning of the piece members of the chordophone family (Violins,Cellos,Bass,Viola) all began to harmonize with each other immediately establishing the tone of the performance. Altogether, the instruments intensity was high as well as expeditious.
Value of Sports and Visual Arts In today's society, high school sports are highly valued. With sports comes recognition, good health, and so much more. Although sports provide many positives for growing teens, they are too glorified. Too much funding and support from schools and communities go into the sports program, and while many programs out of school allow kids to take part in sports, rarely are there any that involve acting, music, and art. The art programs, specifically music, teach creativity and have the benefit of helping with math and science skills.
The ability to create a world that some people cannot understand and meet at a medium is amazing, especially when done through music. Music therapy is intelligently designed to work with individuals of all ages with a vast array of conditions like Jerry and many more. Music therapy allowed Jerry to become self-aware and stimulate his developmental growth within his environment. It allowed him to become stress free so he could live an easier life and promoted self-actualization. In this case Jerry worked in a one and one setting, which was more suited due to his anger tantrums, which were said to be dangerous.
Different music can have different effects on people, people don’t absorb the effect of music the same way. Since, music is considerable as the useful tool and it makes things seems easier for people just by listening to it while concentrating or working on things. It is obvious that music is the best tool in relieving from stress and one study shows that music improves the performance of people at their work or children in school more effectively compared to their performance without music. Music does not just relaxing people but there are many benefits on the development of children with their brain, behavior, intellectual and cognitive that leads children to grow further than they could without music (Silberg, n.d.). This topic was interesting to work and conduct researches on because
Listening to music can also help you concentrate, that might seem a little unlikely because music might be distracting to you, but for kids like me music help us to focus. Classical music is scientifically proven to help enhance concentration levels and enhance memory. Sure though sometimes kids listen to the wrong kind of music and it messes with their concentration, but they just need to find the right kind. Music is also proven to help calm nerves, so they can just relax and focus on the task at hand. All it takes is the right kind of music and the person doing the job will have improved concentration
The piece that was performed started off as a long somber melody that gives off calming sensation. Under this melody was a trilling sound made from thee violinist. This underlying sound keeps changing through the piece, it kept descending and ascending like it was fading in and out of this piece. This calming sensation gives the audience more of a chance to take in the melody and the rhythm of the piece being played. Along with the somber melody, throughout the piece there was a prolonged ringing type of sound as the undertone that gives the piece an interesting contrast.
Not only that, we can teach each other what we lack at. But also, we can share information that is not necessarily music, but a hobby, something that can be enjoyed to enhance my stay in the college. All in all, I do feel that it is necessary (and something I do enjoy) to study music while I am in UCLA, for that is the reason why I am applying to the school. UCLA is a school that has a very strong composition program, and the only school that actually has a composition major. I feel strongly towards this, and very happy that I could actually study composition rather than just “Music” major from other school.
“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.
Music In The Classroom They all look at the same question though: does music make studying easier or does it distract you from learning? In an age where every student has an iPod or iTunes capability, the integration of music in the classroom has grown phenomenally. From personal study music to historical music from an era the class is learning about, music can either be a great motivator for learning or a huge distraction. There have been many studies done over the years about the effect of music and learning. Music is a great a tool for the classroom because it helps motivation, concentration, control over the class.
