Dorian Jones's curator insight, October 11, 2015 1:00 AM

Music in schools let any student be involved in music without having to pay for lessons. While school budgets keep decreasing the time in classes and lay off teachers. The University of Toronto did a study on 6-year-olds, and tested their IQ levels before and after with and without music. The children in music classes had higher IQ levels.

Why do you think Music is an important subject to learn?  Other than learning how to read notes of a sheet, what else can you learn from studying Music?

This editor sees a correlation between music #education and business with compelling real life examples.

Dorian Jones's curator insight, October 11, 2015 1:04 AM

There are so many aspects to learning an instrument one person may not realize. You learn a whole new system of reading, like another language. You also have to define different terminology used in music. On top of keeping with time and working together as a whole. Your ears are working nonstop to listen to pitches. You mind literally goes on an overdrive to strive for perfection.
