Music Education’s Role in a Culture of “College Preparedness”

Here are 4 reasons why schools must embrace music as the nucleus of an education which gives students the tools to complete a college degree:

  1. All children have a ton of talent.
  2. Children shouldn’t be afraid to fail.
  3. Music as a core subject balances out the practice of conformity.
  4. Just because most educational leaders weren’t musicians doesn’t mean it isn’t exactly what children need. 
  5. Students perform better when they are inspired.
