Music is core and fundamental to education because it enriches the quality of life, is universal in nature, educates the whole child, and teaches 21st century skills, which prepare students for success in a competitive global economy.
Music and the arts are vital elements of the core curriculum. The U.S. Department of Education designates arts education as part of the core curriculum.
“Education is the process in which we discover that learning adds quality to our lives. Learning must be experienced. – William Glasser
