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.

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

We do not play an instrument or sing to get to the end of the piece; we do it to make music.
