Why Study Music

When we engage in music, we use all our senses to listen, create and perform, developing a holistic perspective and refining higher order thinking skills that can be adapted to other areas of study or life. Music is an integral part of life as we are surrounded by it through TV commercials, radio and nature. It’s a platform for self-expression and relaxation, whilst enhancing memory skills and coordination. Every part of our brain is active when we listen to, and study music (see Diagram below).
