Music is a form of therapy and self expression. I know that I personally, use music as an escape. Music can also get you a scholarship. It makes kids look forward to going to school.

I agree that music can be therapeutic and help people express themselves in a way that words can"t, but school is the wrong place for that. I think a lot of people will agree that school greatly hinders a person"s natural creativity in favour of a more logical and pragmatic way of thinking. This is the polar opposite of the teaching method needed for music which needs a much more liberal way of teaching.

Whether or not it makes children look forward to school is debatable; does it make them look forward to the school day or simply that music lesson?

In short, I think music should be less important in schools; children should be encouraged to pursue music outside of school where they are free to explore its wonders without boundaries, without rules and without schools natural oppression of creativity.
