Learning a musical instrument should be compulsory in schools
Debate Rounds (1)
Music is known to relax and de-stress people (as shown in the study -http://psychcentral.com...) so to introduce compulsory music lessons would help relieve the pressure put upon children during their time in school.
Many children are not given the chance to learn a musical instrument because of money issues and with the schools funding, every child can have an equal opportunity to learn a musical instrument. I strongly believe this is a step that all schools should take nation wide so there can be a more healthy balance of academic and artistic schooling.

Reasons for voting decision: PRO argued that children aren't given enough opportunities to learn to play musical instruments, and that music has some benefits like reducing stress. (Does learning to play a musical instrument also have similar benefits? Pro never makes that connection.) CON counters that there are good reasons to encourage kids to play musical instruments, but that it shouldn't be mandatory. PRO never offered a reason why all children should learn to play a musical instrument. PRO only noted benefits of music, generally, and talked about funding issues. Clear CON victory.
