the art and music classes in the schools should be compulsory.
firstly, it will help children to enjoy for some moment, because this lessons are not difficult, which will need some solutions of tasks and so on.
secondly, from this classes the child can define their hidden talents.
thirdly, some children can lead their abilities like drawing to the professional ways and this will help them to find their roles in the world.

Art and music are very creative and vast subjects. However it is not necessary that everyone shall be a good musician or good at art. Hence music and art as compulsory subjects sound to be wrong.
It is nice if schools have infrastructure facilities to teach art and music. Those who have a deep aptitude for art and music can take-up those subjects and even master those for that matter. At the same time making subjects of music and art as compulsory, may take a considerable amount of time and energy of students which otherwise he or she can devote towards main subjects like, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, etc. Devoting time to main subjects is a paramount importance for success in the examinations and future career. Hence and art and music may be optional but not compulsory.
Music and Art shall be highly beneficial to those who have an aptitude of learning art and music and aspirant musicians and artists.
Subject of Art and Music is very creative and one must learn it. Nevertheless the world is not composed of artists and musicians only, apart from this, everyone may not become artist and musician nor art and music form a base or constitute the foundation of academia. In conclusion art and music are purely subjects that must be indulged in for creativity and entertainment to those who opt for and should not be made compulsory for all students

No, i think that there are some other important reasons, which will support the idea that art and music classes should be mandatory. Firstly, i already mentioned about that the child who had the lessons of art and music can find their talent. Moreover, according to the international researches, children who attend more art and music class in early years of childhood, have the tendency to hold an positive attitude towards the world. So, as it can be seen, these lessons help create a personality, which calls sustainability to the difficulties which the person may face in his or her whole life. Additionally, there is an another point. That is when the pupil have the classes of art and music in the schools they will know more about the beauty and human beings. As you know, the pupil used to have the classes like math, physics, which will teach only the principles of the world, but art and music classes give them an opportunity to know more about the whole world, not just the rights of human. In conclusion, i want to say that according to these reasons the art and music classes should be obligatory.

As I mentioned earlier,making music and art compulsory subject, may take a considerable amount of time and energy of students which otherwise he or she can devote towards main subjects like, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, etc. Devoting time to main subjects is a paramount importance for success in the examinations and future career. Hence and art and music may be optional but not compulsory.
Fact of the WORLD and the behavior of it's objects and people may surely be obtained by cultivating Science.Again all children may not like music or art which if treated as compulsory subject may also lead to severe stress and divert them from their main goal of learning.

You know that after the subjects, like math, physics or chemistry the children or the pupil is really tired, because these subjects are not so easy to learn. That is why, after having the classes which i mentioned the pupils need to have some diversion. Additionally, i am against that to your point that all children may not like the classes of art and music. Why? In contrast, the majority of children or even adults have a significant curiosity for example when they draw something. As i mentioned, it will be better not only have some basic knowledges of humanity, like math, physics and so on, but even having some knowledges about the other side of our world, which calls "beauty". Also, according to the statistics, having the skill in art and music will be beneficial to child finding a job in the future. Today, a lot of companies are complaining that the employee has a less understanding in art and music. If the children have the obligatory courses of art and music, it will help them to lead their school interests into their future life. I think that if there are only occupations like engineers,mathematician or some other related things, our world will be boring. Because of it, the government should not forget that for child it is important to having basic knowledges which i already wrote, but an individual of 21 century should be multilateral at the same time. That is why, the art and music classes should mandatory in education system.

It's not true that Maths,Physics,Chemistry are difficult to learn as the same for music! The moment you think it's difficult it becomes certainly difficult for you.
On the other hand, addiction to music may make one completely isolated from the society. Dedication to a single subject may result in phenomenal success in many cases but struggling with many may result in nothing. To become a polymath with arts and music after heavy stress in other subjects may prove disastrous for many.
Much of the music produced by the leading pop-stars are not fit for children of age below 14 years. As for arts, it is impossible to learn many different languages like-French,German,Spanish,Russian or Chinese and so on and as well World History for every child and memorise them.
As for "Knowledge about BEAUTY" from music or arts I know not if that's possible!BEAUTY LIES IN THE EYES OF THE BEHOLDER. Again, as a profession music may be intimately connected to drug addiction which is strongly repulsive.

For the above reasons, arts and music may be optional to those strongly interested but not compulsory for all school student.
