Why Does Music Matter?

Research shows that music enhances learning by nourishing our cognitive, sensory, attention, emotional and motor capacities – the driving forces behind ALL other learning. It has been proven that youth who have access to music education benefit from:

  • 1) Superior grades and higher graduation rates

  • 2) Better SAT scores and chances of going to college

  • 3) Enhanced critical and creative thinking skills

  • 4) Better cooperation and teamwork skills

  • 5) Reduced risky behaviors, such as substance abuse

  • 6) Greater discipline and understanding of the value of hard work.

“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.”
