Article: Benefits of learning a musical instrument

In the harsh reality of limited time and funding for instruction, coupled with Singapore’s relentless pursuit of academic excellence, the inclusion of music in a student's education can sometimes be relegated to a distant wish rather than an exciting reality.

It doesn't have to be that way!

What parents have to understand is that music education helps our kids and communities in real and substantial ways. The benefits can be grouped in four categories:

Academic Success

Skills learned through the discipline of music are transferred to study skills, communication skills, and cognitive skills useful in every part of the curriculum. An association of music and math has been noted: Students who were given an enhanced sequential music curriculum had developed quicker reading and math skills. They had in fact, progressed faster than students who were in the normal academic streams and pulled ahead in math.

The effectiveness of music study in helping children become better students is a worthwhile consideration for parents deciding if they should spend the extra dollar on music education.

Development in the child’s intelligence

Success in school and in society are dependent on each individual’s set of abilities. Some measures of a child's intelligence are indeed increased with music instruction. There are market data and cognitive research in the US that points towards music education making kids smarter.

“A research team exploring the link between music and intelligence reported that music training is far superior to computer instruction in dramatically enhancing children's abstract reasoning skills, the skills necessary for learning math and science.”

Shaw, Rauscher, Levine, Wright, Dennis and Newcomb, "Music training causes long-term enhancement of preschool children's spatial-temporal reasoning," Neurological Research, Vol. 19, February 1997

Spiritual nourishment & promotes well-being

A music education commencing from a very young age, brings numerous benefits to each individual throughout his or her life. The benefits may be in the form of spiritual nourishment or psychological improvement, and they may be physical as well.

Studying music also encourages self-discipline and diligence, good characteristics that carry over into intellectual pursuits and that lead to better work and study habits. Creating and performing music promotes self-expression and provides self-gratification while giving pleasure to others.

Economic success

Music itself, is an important subset of our society, which is a reason that every child must have some form of music education in the early formative years, to seek out talented musicians who may in future contribute to the economic success of the society.

The music industry create jobs, boost tourism, spur growth in related businesses (record companies, theatres, dance groups, restaurants, advertising etc.) which is a booming industry in many countries. 

"Music is about communication, creativity, and cooperation, and, by studying music in school, students have the opportunity to build on these skills, enrich their lives, and experience the world from a new perspective."

- Bill Clinton, former President, United States of America
