I'm doing a senior project for my school. I can obviously find reasons why music education is important. But I can't seem to find any good logical opinions as to why it isn't important. I'm just looking for some opinions.

Music education isn't important in the general aspect because there isn't a market for it as compared to sciences or a trade.

We need mechanics, we need chemists, we don't need another guitar player. On top of that there are so many people already taking Musical type educations the demand is very low.

The only way music education can be important as if you already have a job lined up and the education is simply arbitrary or an added bonus.

Education isn't always about making money.

Yea but even as a career path, you can still make money off of it, even if you aren't a performer.

I mean you could make the argument that because collage is an investment and majoring in music tends to be a poor investment it's not intrinsic.

Music education should be in place but often is eliminated due to lack of funding. If there are teacher cuts to be made, art and music teachers are the first to go.

I guess to find some logical reasons you could look for possible career paths and argue why the career choices aren't very good.
Hope this helps....
