Everyday we experience how music education allows children to express themselves creatively, reduces stress, and helps improve their self-esteem and confidence.
But have you heard that music education also:

  • improves language ability and attention span
  • increases brain function and treats neurological conditions
  • instills empathy

Need some stats?

  • Schools without music education, which average 72.9% graduation and 84.9% attendance.
  • Schools with music programs have an estimated 90.2% graduation rate and 93.9% attendance rate.
