THE IMPORTANCE OF A MUSIC EDUCATION
Many parents encourage or even require their children to take music lessons because they believe it is an important part of education. Many of those parents have never taken music lessons themselves, and probably are not 100% sure why they believe it is important.
The reason music education is important is that it develops some very important characteristics in the young mind that no other discipline develops. First, it teaches the importance of doing something perfectly (performance). Second, it teaches the importance of personal expression in a creative process, within the limitations of an acceptable mode or style. Third, it teaches the student how to work on a very long term project in very small steps. Fourth, it teaches true teamwork in ways that sports never can.
