Why Study Music

We present four good reasons. Meet the 4Cs.

Creativity

Our source of new possibilities, creativity is intelligence at play. In the ideas economy of today, creativity is the way forward. What better way to tap in than with music? Study music, open your mind to wonder. Make music and express your creativity.

Communication

A language of the soul, music expresses that which cannot be said. Some have even likened it to the speech of angels. One thing’s for sure, a life without music is a heart silenced. So let the music begin.

Critical Assessment

Intelligence is the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills. On the other hand, emotional stability is the capacity to respond well to life’s inconsistencies. To excel at both, one must be in touch with both factual and emotional sides of the mind. Enter music. It’s one of the few disciplines that demand this ability and reinforces critical thinking.

Commitment

Quitters never win. Only those who endure, conquer. In music, all scholars are trained to perform from start to finish. In spite of any performance errors, it is unusual for a musician to stop halfway. When you combine ordinary talent with extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.

What’s more, educational research has proven why music matters:

  • Students are more likely to behave

  • Students who can perform complex rhythms can also make faster and more precise corrections in many academic and physical situations. They also plan better for positive daily living.
  • Students who study music achieve higher test scores, regardless of socioeconomic background.
  • College and university admissions officers continue to cite music participation as an important factor in making admissions decisions. They say music participation demonstrates time management, creativity, expression, and open-mindedness.
