WHY MUSIC?

Success in Society

Secondary students who participated in band or orchestra reported the lowest lifetime and current use of all substances (alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs).

Success in School

Schools had higher attendance, fewer discipline referrals, more parent involvement and school approval and high teacher morale. The arts changed the entire school ecology.

Success in Developing Intellegence

Results suggest that neural changes accompanying musical training during childhood are retained in adulthood.

Success in Life

Creating a performance can help executives develop basic management skills.
