More Than Just Music Research has found that learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas. “A music-rich experience for children of singing, listening and moving is really bringing a very serious benefit to children as they progress into more formal learning,” says Mary Luehrisen, executive director of the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation, a not-for-profit association that promotes the benefits of making music. Making music involves more than the voice or fingers playing an instrument; a child learning about music has to tap into multiple skill sets, often simultaneously.

Why Music Education Is Important When educational cuts are made, music and art are amongst the first subjects to go. Unfortunately, it means that parents, educators and even board members are overlooking each subject`s importance. Music education is more than just introducing students to beats, notes and songs. Instead, it completely transforms a child`s mind and opens up endless possibilities to their learning potential. One of the most notable studies on music and the brain, the Mozart Effect, began as a college research experiment.
It was only recently that this idea of man’s connection to music was brought into the world of medicine. Music therapy is the technique of prescribing music to a patient, along with traditional medicine. The job as a music therapist can be challenging and many times difficult to handle, still, it brings many amazing opportunities. It is important that before one takes the first steps to become a music therapist, he or she knows what lies ahead.

Alcaraz Yovela Rose Badua Frances Maxine Marie Capili Kim Nichole Carianga Joanne Marie De Leon Jastine Loise Ramos INTRODUCTION: Listening to music for relaxation is common among students to counter the effects of stress or anxiety while completing difficult academic tasks. Some studies supporting this technique have shown that background music promotes cognitive performance while other studies have shown that listening to music while engaged in complex cognitive tasks can impair performance. The relationship between music and learning has been an area of interest for researchers for many years. Some studies have shown that music can enhance cognitive abilities (Hall, 1952), and others have shown that it can interfere with complex cognitive processes but not simple processes (Fogelson, 1973). In 2004, researchers conducted a study that presented the effect of Mozart’s music on learning.
From a very early age, I wanted to and have to quite an extent, attain a strong understanding of the use of tune, rhythm and beats, how to pace up, where to pause and breathe. My sensible approach and proficiency has made everyone appreciate my voice and my flair very much. My urge to become a singer, grew stronger with each passing day. As I approached my junior year in school, pressure was building up and academics became my first and only priority. The more I concentrated on my studies, the more I felt my passion slip out of my fingers.
Teaching Music In Primary Schools 1 After just over five years of teaching music in the primary school system, I felt strong-willed to enlighten the general public and all educators of the importance of music in schools.

Why children should be debarred from being a part of music programs and activities like Junior Panorama and Sanfest just to name a few. Is the Secondary entry assessment exam in Trinidad and Tobago so important that we neglect the child other hidden gifts and talents?
