So we’ve just finished our recital, and I just love seeing how much the kids have learned. I just wanted to take a minute to share how much I appreciate your support!
THANK YOU!!! To all you music parents out there that have supported your children in their music education, thank you! The kids have learned so much this year, not magically, but through your constant support. You rock!
Though there are probably so many reasons you’ve decided to share this with your child, maybe it’s the fun, maybe it’s to learn the value of dedication and discipline, maybe to increase your child’s IQ, or to build character, or…..
Here are 20 benefits to Music Education:
Enhances emotional development, imagination and creativity (a reason often shared by music parents with me)
Engages specific areas of the brain
Betters understanding of languages
Helps raise achievement levels
Increases test scores, higher grades, and the ability to think outside the box
Allows for meaningful expression
Self-esteem is a by-product of this self-expression
Betters hand-eye coordination (An amazing skill parents are often surprised their child can read music, even before English and gives them an edge in sports too)
Helps with learning disabilities
Better prepares students for the real world
Develops brain areas involved in language and reasoning
Enhances teamwork skills
Enhances spatial-temporal skills
Builds independence and self-confidence
Music performance teaches young people to conquer fear and to take risks
And so much more!
