The importance of art and music classes in almost all country are low. All get used that these subjects tend to be seen as less important than other lessons. Nowadays we have so many diverse opinions about the art and music lessons necessity in our life. Most of the people think that these subjects are just waste our precious time, however, others think that it is not an essential part that people cannot live without. Nevertheless, I believe that art is incredibly important to student"s education.
The first notable reason that art and music classes should be in schools is to be versatile person and develop creativity. While looking at the beautiful creations, people can identify a deep meaning of pictures or sculptures. That is why, art gives an opportunity to see the major purpose of items and the details of painting can help to be all- round educated generation. According to Valerie Strauss the children who engaged art classes will think from different perspectives, because in art programs while child create a painting, it train their memory. In future these kinds of attainments may be useful in career. And also music helps people be more many- sided in way that they can learn how to play in different instruments. If there wren"t be any music classes may be students would"t know that they have such kind of ability to music. "Music rightly is the best mind trainer" (Charles) Moreover, the art and music lessons can cultivate our creativity. Some people assume that creativity is a gift of God, but there are others who think creativity as an ability, which people can evolve by themselves. For instance, when students draw something, it will help to think about what and how they would paint; these thoughts help to be more creative. Furthermore, humanity can evolve their creativity by colors, textures, lines and forms of artist work and see a deep meaning of his pictures. Because of it, people have a big chance to be more constructive and originative.

The art is a very important for the formation of human morality. However, someone have a talent and some have not. Those who are not so successful in an art, may not get an excellent mark and deprived of the opportunity to get diploma in future. Moreover, if pupils do know that they are not good at some lessons as their classmates, it may reduce their self- esteem. Everyone has different abilities and would not it be right to develop them each individually. Moreover, of course, it helps to be very versatile, but if pupil have not any interests on these particular subjects. Art can lose its uniqueness in the eyes of the students. Perhaps it would be better if such a science as an art will be something very lofty and noble.

Thank you for my opponent for debating with me. I agree with that some people have talant some not, but we can also say that some people have talant to solve the problem on math, and some have not. But it does not mean that we should remove the item from school program. I also agree with that everyone has different abilities, however I do not agree with that we should develop each individually. If they develop each individually, then how can they be versatile generation? People do not know in what they capable and if they have not a talent, they can evolve it with the lapse of time.
Second argument, which can be provided as in favor, is when humanity looks at the portraits or pictures that created with many color, or listen various types of music, it manipulate their moods, and also help to grow morally. People can understand the feelings and emotions of an artist and composer by every piece of art and music. That is why, when people look at the creation of an artist, they can communicate with him without words. It is a big opportunity to grow spiritually, because it explains the deep meanings of artist creations. The art can permit to see the beauty of life, nature and people. In addition, art has a power, which can influence our state of feelings, because of colorfulness, structure, and lines of paints. Physiologists assert that looking at the picture with an aggressive color, it makes heart rates increase. If person looks at picture with calm colors, it lowers blood pleasure (Flynn). According to Debra Levy music aids to ameliorate breathing and hand mouth coordination. Because of it, we can call art as a regulator of our moods.

Art and music classes don"t seem to be used on an everyday basis. There is no point in learning and spending time on a class that won"t be needed in your future. Jobs that deal with music and art are very low at this time. If your going to take a class, make sure it will be useful and help you out in your future. Additionally, high schools should not make these classes mandatory, they should make them extra curricular. These electives should be treated more like a club and be going on after school. If schools make these classes after school, students will be more interested and less distracted. They will be able to focus on doing something they enjoy and take a break from school work. Also, students have more free time and need something to do after school.
Art is a very important science. It is often hard to understand, but it is more difficult to teach. This requires an amount of highly qualified teachers who fully know their jobs and are able to educate students. But in many countries often do not have enough teachers who teach basic subjects, not to mention about additional. And of course, because of low wages, few would sacrifice their sensitive knowledge in the field of art for teaching. It will not bring any benefits and trainees; it will just lose their time.

The art and music classes can give an opportunity to figure out about our history in the past and get a message from artists and composers. The history pictures, students can imagine how people lived in the past life. By antecedent time in art pupil can learn their culture, styles, problems and so on. Today"s generations are so lucky, because they can see history by the pictures in schoolbooks. For instance, when I read a history, sometimes I could not imagine the situation that was in past. But, by the picture of books I can imagine everything and it is easier to figure out about our history. " If you do not know the history, you do not know anything. You are a leaf that doesn't know it is part of a tree"( Crichton) That is why, art is one of the best ways to find out about bygone and culture. In music class students can also know more about their history by poetry, or by folk songs. "There are more valid facts and details in works of art than there are in history books" (Charlie).
Unfortunately, nowadays schools of many countries are more focus on subjects such as math, language, biology, however the importance of art and music has the same like in other lessons. Art and music lessons play an important role in our lives and in the lives of young people helping to involve imaginations, aid to grow morally, and learn history. Without art our life would be gray.

Studying art and music in this period is a waste of time. Students who are interested in art and music can specify in the area they really like by learning from other sources and practising in clubs. Those who are not interested will have more time to learn the subjects they like. They will make a better decision on choosing a job in the future.
High school students should be able to choose what electives they want to do during school. High schools making art and music classes mandatory would not be a good thing. It will make it harder to find work if students mainly study art and music. Students also won"t be as interested if they"re not willing to do the class. Art and music class should be treated like a club and should be chosen to be taken during school or after school. In the end, students being able to choose their electives, it will make it more interesting for the students.

Thanks to my opponent to a well thought out debate.
