Music should not be optional in schools. In school one of the main goals is to have students experience as much as they can to prepare for adulthood and widen their view of the world. Kind of like when mothers tell their kids to try something to see if they like it (I discovered my love of ice cream this way). This is not mentioning the learning benefits that playing music can offer.

Sorry if this argument is inadequate but I am having a hard time motivating myself with this debate as you have practically quit it.

Con

Music should NOT be optional in all schools as students deserve opportunities to try new things. If they like music, the students become a part of not just a world of music, but also gain many other benefits. Such as social benefits, and this is from personal experience as a student, that those in band become a part of a band clique making new friends and going to social events for the band. Band provides another social group for those who are perhaps not good at sports or popular.

All kids should at sometime in their life try music (and should have the opportunity to try music).
