Music is indeed essential to have in the school systems.
1. Music stimulates the mind, causes you to think in ways you wouldn't in other subjects. With band, It teaches multi-tasking skills that stimulates the brain. You need to read music and play the instrument at the same time, which in doing, you are reading rhythms, counting beats, paying attention to artistic details like dynamics and articulations, and all the while remembering fingerings on the instrument and paying attention to intonation, and listening to matching the pitch and staying in tune with other musicians around you. This all goes the same for chorus except for remembering fingerings. You can fight the case that some people aren't skilled in music but if someone were to actually try, anyone can accomplish being skilled at an instrument or in voice, all it takes is practice. You have fingers, you have lungs, you have a voice, you should be able to be skilled if you tried. If it comes to the fact that they simply don't like music then they can chose to not take the course after trying. At my High School it is an option to take music classes. But to eliminate it from the school systems as a whole is a large mistake.

2. A lot of the same things can go for art. Not only does it provoke creativity, and to help create ones own person, it teaches a lot of culture that can't be focused on in other classes. Also when a child creates a piece of art, it gives them something to be proud of.
