My philosophy about Music Education: I believe that music is a vital part of each student's education. Learning about music is important in itself, as this is part of a well-rounded education and has been a part of a well-rounded education since the time of the ancient Greeks. Music also has other benefits as it uses elements from every area of the school curriculum, many studies have proven that music education improves school performance, and it provides a place for many students to excel who that may struggle in other academic areas. Music is something a child can enjoy their entire life!
