Benefits of Music

 

There is no substitute for music. Besides giving us joy, music enriches the inner self: it nourishes the love of learning, puts us in touch with our feelings and facilitates growth in motivation, self-discipline, time management and social skills. We do not play an instrument or sing to get to the end of the piece; we do it to make music.

Music helps us relate to the wider world, to get away from our daily routine. It teaches cooperation and teamwork and encourages cultural awareness.
