I love music and I sing music personally. I have been reading about how music can benefit kids.
Music can positively impact the kids when started very early. Studies say that music improves brain development in young kids.
It will help them with patience, discipline. It helps to develop their creativity and expression at a very early age.
For teenagers and adults music serves as a stress buster. It helps the body relive the stress
and deal with social and emotional stress. He helps them to calm down, relax the mind and helps them to think positively.
Teenage is such a vulnerable age that they can get influenced easily. Studies showed that music helps them to balance their thoughts and think positive.
Music can be a good mood lifter and makes them happy.
In a University Research paper, it was published that kids who enjoy music, play an instrument or sing music have higher rate of success than others with out.
Music helps kids to be a master in memorization. It helps in better pattern recognition, better SAT scores. One report indicates 63 points higher on verbal and 44 points higher on math for students in music appreciation courses.
Music therapy is a therapy to help disabled kids to overcome their disabilities. Studies shows that for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and schizophrenia, musical intervention appears to naturally reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety, as well as improve one’s creativity, and communication.
Music therapy is based on a trained musical therapist improvising music with the patient and can be done in a one-on-one setting or groups. There are two distinct types of music therapy: active and passive. Active music therapy involves an intense interaction between the therapist and the patient, compared to passive music therapy, where the patient is typically at rest while listening to the therapist.Studies show that music therapy helps improve the functions of the brain.Research indicates that music therapy can cure patients without any medication.
Hope this information emphasizes why you should focus on music at school :)
