Music Education Counts

“Music education opens doors that help children pass from school into the world around them — a world of work, culture, intellectual activity, and human involvement. The future of our nation depends on providing our children with a complete education that includes music.” — Gerald Ford, former President, United States of America

The National Association for Music Education narrows down the benefits of a music education into four categories:

  • Success in society
  • Success in school
  • Success in developing intelligence
  • Success in life

“Every student [should] have an education in the arts,” they write. “Music is the fabric of our society.”
