Why is music important in primary schools?

​Music education is​ important in primary schools for several reasons:

  • ​Improve academic performance. Music education has been shown to improve academic performance in areas such as reading, math and science. This is because music helps to develop cognitive skills that are also important for academic success, such as memory, problem-solving, and critical thinking.
  • Promote creativity and imagination. Music is a creative outlet that allows children to express themselves in new and different ways. It can help to develop their imagination and creativity, which are important skills for success in many areas of life.
  • Enhance social skills. Music can help children to develop social skills such as cooperation, teamwork, and communication. When children play music together, they have to learn to listen to each other, take turns, and work together as a team.
  • Build self-confidence. Music can help children to build self-confidence in several ways. When children learn to play an instrument or sing, they feel a sense of accomplishment. They also learn to perform in front of others, which can help to build their confidence.
  • Provide a sense of joy and well-being. Music is a form of art that can bring joy and well-being to people of all ages. It can help to relieve stress, promote relaxation, and boost mood.​​​
For all these reasons, music education is an important part of a child's primary school education. It can help children to develop the cognitive, socials, emotional, and creative skills that they need to succeed in school and life.
