My name is roxanne russell and I am doing my gold arts award in which we have to form and communicate an issue within the arts world. My issue is that music lessons are too expensive and that music is not available to everyone to everyone.Please comment if you have an opinion.

Argument: The average music lesson cost "28 an hour, with you needing at least an hour a week needed. This means that there are less people taking music as there is a gap between those on benifits and those who can actually afford music lessons.Research by scientists has proved that music can boost your IQ by as much as 7 points. Any age can benifits from playing a musical instrument as it improves you fine motor skills.Music also helps you to release your feelings in an expressive controlled way.


Being a musician myself I have experience in the music industry. Music lessons are not necessary let alone not available. I play guitar and piano and I have thought myself to play both. if you have the instrument then you can learn how play. Many YouTube channels teach and instruct the basics along with pieces of music for free. You can also print out many instruction sheets and tutorials.

Besides, the main cost of music is time and dedication, not actual money itself.

And... where is your argument? You're simply assuming that 28 is too much, without any proof or sources at all. Hint, you can take this debate down before someone accepts it, change your argument, and repost it.

Reasons for voting decision: *Note to Pro - try to avoid 1 round debates, it leaves you with no opportunity to respond to your opponent after they present their initial argument.* Conduct - Tie. Both had good conduct. S&G - Tie. Both had good spelling and grammar throughout. Arguments - Con. This was an interesting rebuttal from Con and reminiscent of a Kritik, in which Con undermined the fundamental issue Pro presented by showing the non-necessity of it in the first place. In doing so, I was convinced that Pro's issue was incorrect and that lessons aren't too expensive since you can get them for free from YouTube, as Con argued. Due to this, Con wins arguments. Sources - Tie. Neither utilized sources in this debate. *Note to Pro - when you make claims like, "scientists have proven..." you should follow it up with a link to the article where scientists actually prove it. It helps with the impact of your claims.*
