Learning Music can Increase School performance
Learning music can increase school performance. The discipline that learning a musical instrument such as
the clarinet, saxophone, flute, mandolin, recorder or guitar teaches
that even though a task may seem hard at first, the
more that you work on it the better
you become. Each step can be very small, but at the
end of six months or a year of practicing every day for a half an hour, the student shows tremendous improvement in the physical ability to play the
instrument as well as a profound increase in musical understanding. These
abilities can carry over to the
student's school work. This means that instead of thinking about music as an
extra activity that takes time away from school work learning a musical
instrument adds more value to school work.
