Most parents do not consider music search criteria when seeking to enrol their ward in a school. There is a tendency to focus more on the basic and standard studies in schools such as writing, reading, and arithmetic. Little do they know that music is as important as other subjects.
As we all know, music is the art of combining vocal cords or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion. Music is a thing of the soul and mind. It improves the education of our children by helping them make a connection and broadening the degree with which they think and feel and it helps in building children’s intellectual development. Through music, the creativity and perpetual motor skills of the children are increased. The children find it easy to use their imagination or original ideas to create something. Music grooms the personal and social skills and also increase the emotional sensitivity of the children.
Music is an enjoyable subject that helps the skilfulness of memorization of the students and boosts the interest of the child to stay engaged in school. It has been discovered that musically trained participants remembered 17% more verbal information than those without musical training.
