Art clubs help kids express themselves in way in ways they cannot without things like a pencil or music. If kid can't express themselves they could become depressed and horrible things could happen to them and the people that are close to them. Also kids need to make friends with the same interests as them, and joining art clubs that they are interested in they will meet others with those same interests.
Students should have art and music because it lets them come out of their shell and interact with people. If schools didn't have music and art it would be anarchy!!! Without art and music people would loose their sense of imagination and creativity!! People would be boring and dull and be kind creepy.
As a young violinist, I know for a fact that music benefits all areas of study. It is proven to raise grades and help disruptive behavior. Yes, it costs money, but instruments do not need to be replaced constantly; therefore they can last forever. If a student has a five-page essay and a concert on the same night, he should know what to do. After a while he should know how to handle these types of situations. Take Venezuela for an example: one of the poorest countries in the world with one of the lowest GPAs ever. The children were skipping school and robbing stores at the age of five. The government came up with the idea of letting kids start music at the age of four in pre-kindergarten for free. They begin by singing and eventually moved up to an instrument, all government funded. Students began attending school because of their interest in music, the crime rate dropped drastically, GPAs skyrocketed, and now they have some of the world's greatest musicians, artists, scientists and professors. Music and the arts seem like a little thing but why don't you take a look at the schools who do drop music from their education? They actually lose money! Student behavior begins to become violent, causing the schools to get less pay and funds; therefore they can't use extra money to help the students. As for schools with music, well, Venezuela is a good enough example. Music gives kids a purpose in life and it keeps them away from bad influences. Music should always be kept in school, no matter what.
I think it's important for kids to learn about music and art. They need a chance to shine and to show others what they've got. Otherwise, how will they learn that they have talent? They should be able to show people what they can do, and inspire others to go and get it! Plus, it's always important to have fun in school amongst all the more stressful subjects like algebra and science.
Is the study of art and music important enough to keep within the US educational system? I believe that it is. Schools within the United States have not properly addressed the importance of art and music in education. Many American states have either already gotten rid of their arts programs or will be getting rid of them in the future. This will not only prevent some children from pursuing a rich career in the arts, but also hinder some people’s ability to learn and retain information. The arts have been proven to expand and enrich the mind in ways that math, science, and history cannot. They are languages that all people speak that cut across racial, cultural, social, educational, and economic barriers and enhance cultural appreciation and awareness. It is unreasonable to completely get rid of these very important subjects in the educational process.
Yes, all schools should provide students with music and art education. Students should be exposed to art and music classes to give them a well-rounded education. Teachers will also find students who will enjoy and excel in these classes, and could possibly go on to careers in art or music. We should provide children with the broadest education possible, not only to give them a good education, but to give them a variety of subjects to sample – one of them could end up turning into a passion for life.
I believe all schools should provide students with music and art education. These subjects help to enrich a students mind, and brings out potential that may be otherwise missed without it. School is tough enough nowadays with "difficult" subjects, but art and music help to break up a school day and allow students to enjoy themselves and be creative.
The teaching of art and music in schools is part of a well-rounded education that prepares kids to understand and reflect on society. The humanities serve as a complement to math and science, and these disciplines work together to produce holistic education. Society needs people who can be creative, expressive, and innovative. Some appreciation and encouragement must be provided or else culture will be lost.
Yes, every student should have the opportunity to learn about music and art. These are important parts of culture that all individuals need to understand. Furthermore, they help students understand other subjects, like math and problem solving, better. We know students who are good at music perform better in other areas as well. Finally, many kids enjoy these subjects and they may not enjoy other parts of school. Its important that students have a positive view of education if we want to create lifelong learners.
Yes, music and art education are an important part of every education. Studies have been conducted that show that students who participate in music and the arts do better in their other academic classes and are better adjusted socially. The arts are an important part of our world and can be a legitimate career path, so children shouldn't be prevented from exploring that and using their creativity.
Every school should have an art class so they can show there students to be creative and imagine what there minds can draw of color . They need to know what it is like to be able to draw. Or to color or even believe in art to be come an artist
Being an arts program myself, music and theatre have gotten me through most of my high school experience. The arts is a place where students can find themselves and what they love. I'm not really an athletic person and I only do one other extra curricular activity outside the arts and that's speech. But the arts teaches me a new lesson each day that'll help me through life. How to improve my public speaking, communication skills, working together, believing in myself, trust, family. And the fact that some schools don't have that opportunity really is just plain sad. YES, they cost money and time but what doesn't. It's worth it to me though if it's an outlet for the students to be themselves.
On the surface, art and similarly geared school programs seem useless, as they don't teach the children anything. I agree with the sentiment that they aren't very informative in terms of academic learning, but that's no reason to cut them. It has been proven from several studies that arts courses help grades, and that students enrolled in these courses score notably higher than those not enrolled. Indeed, it may not be teaching kids, but they help the kids learn what they're being taught in other classes.
All schools should provide students with music and art education because it helps them express them selves and express how they feel inside! If schools did not let kids take classes on music and art most of the students would focus less and not want to do their work if they cant have a break!
Anyone interested in attending an Ivy League university or even just normal universities in general should know that there are thousands of students applying with GPA's at either a similar level or at the highest (4.0) the trend is just too common and Ivy league schools look for a student who was involved in an extracurricular activity. Anyone can be book smart. An individual who is book smart AND talented in the arts shows their obvious ability to maintain their steady academic progress and competence in understanding the complex theories that are present when it comes to music. As a High School student, I am able to maintain my ranking at #17 and have been honored to be a part of a VERY successful music program. Being recognized on a NATIONAL level is not a waste of any resource in an economic or commitment point of view.
Kids need to be able to express themselves. They need some place they belong. If you are not in a sport there is not really anything else for you to do in school. This leaves them bored and uninspired. Coming from a student perspective I have to say that the music program has kept me in school. To stay in a Fine Arts program you must keep up your grades. This makes the students try to succeed more in core classes in order to stay in a music or art program. There is also the fact that they must stay clean to stay in these programs. This makes kids stay away from drugs an alcohol for fear of not being able to stay in these programs. Music and arts programs should be allowed in school because if someone can not express themselves why would they want to go on with other things. Fine arts program are important to many students and they need these to keep them active in other class activities.
Music and art are ways that students can express themselves. It trains the mind to be creative and think outside of the box. Which also helps in other key subject areas, for instance science when inferences are to be made from research. Also it helps teach children when they have hard topics to grasp,they would turn to music to help them focus. Instead of taking it out they should learn how to use it to improve the curriculum and education system.
Students have so much to gain from an education in the arts. Not only do these programs provide a place for students to feel like they fit in, but there are many academic benefits as well. Studies show that students in schools with arts programs score higher on standardized tests, have fewer absences, and higher graduation rates than those without arts programs.
Music can help with other Classes you take. As Laura Lewis Brown stats in her article The Benefits of Music Education on PBS.Org “Research has found that learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas.” It is saying that music can help the brain capacity and make you smarter. According to this statement here by Kenneth Guilmartin “Music learning supports all learning. Not that Mozart makes you smarter, but it’s a very integrating, stimulating pastime or activity.” So according to both of these statements here they are both saying that Music education helps the brain and being able to succeed in other educational classes.
3. A lot has been written on how art classes can enhance creativity, but not that much been written about how art encourages critical thinking, learning, and cognition. The US Secretary of Education published a report, "The Value Added Benefits of the Arts,” in which he states, “Studies have shown that teaching and learning arts can increase students’ cognitive and social development. The arts can be a critical link for students in developing the crucial thinking skills and motivations they need to achieve at higher levels" (Deasy, & Stevenson, 2002). Increased learning potential is a reason that art school be enforced in schools.
How can we say that only history, math, and their first language are important? Music and art are the way children express their own feelings. By music and art, children will be available to raise their ability of them and creativity. All schools should provide students with music and art education for their future.
It is a proven fact that students involved in music to better in school and have a better chance of going to a good college! Why cut it? If you want to cut something, cut algebra! When was the last time you used algebra in the real world? You don't!
It can be described as the irreducible part of humanity that is inherent and not dependent on factors such as gender, race or class. It includes concerns such as the meaning of life, the search for gratification, the sense of curiosity, the power of creativity, the inevitability of isolation, or awareness regarding the inescapability of death. You can read about these things in a classroom, but in a music,drama, or art studio, they are alive and expressive..
Music and art teach creative problem solving skills. For example: "How can I get this phrase to sound like the composer intended it? There are multiple ways to get the desired sound, but which technique or trick do I need to use in order to acheive this accurately?" Just as testing out different methods is applicable to music, it also extends to mathematics or the sciences: "There are multiple ways to solve this math problem, which one will I understand the most while at the same time getting the correct answer?" "I am testing out a new hypothesis for this scientific experiment. What steps should I take to prove or disprove my experiment?" Even in the science of engineering: "There are multiple ways to build this bridge, what is the method that will allow it to be most structurally sound, safe, and highly functional?". Music teaches there is more than one way to solve the problem based on a student's ability to learn and understand the material while acheiving the desired results.
As said by a previous commentor, music and art give children something in common to relate to each other with, allowing them to develop social skills they will need for any career whether it be in business, marketing, teaching, scientific research, medicine, or law as well as develop creativ skills. The creativity inspired by art and music will allow ideas to flourish as student attempt to imitate and recreate, which reinforces my first point. The sharing of ideas is also how many problems in science and medicine are solved and new methods for solving them are created.
Recent medical findings have found a correlation between the arts and lowered stress levels, which leads to significant decreases in stress-related illnesses such as heart attacks, strokes, intestinal conditions. They also aid in the treatment of mental illnesses such as anxiety, depression, mood/behavioral disorders, Autism spectrum and developmental disorders, and Alzheimer's disease. Now knowing that the arts aid in stress relief, we can infer that these programs in schools provide an outlet for a student to channel the stresses brought on by academic and social pressure. This enables a student to relax, allowing them to better concentrate on their school work and acheive better grades. In addition, students who become serious about music and art learn discipline and competitiveness out of a desire to "come out on top", which is necessary to succeed in today's global economy and job market.
With music, students can study other languages. Many operas are written in Italian, French, Latin, or German with many others from around the world in Chinese, Japanese, etc. Composers often indicate the style of a piece with phrases such as "allegro" (Italian for "fast").
Finally, both music and art programs are fun for anyone of any age, and after all, don't we need some sort of enjoyment in a life that for some can be anything but joyful?
As a life-long musician I can say with all honesty that music education can be an essential building block for success throughout one's lifetime. It give you confidence, skills, coordination, and a sense of accomplishment. Music and art education has longer lasting, farther reaching effects than any other program outside of core subjects.
I feel that not only all public schools, but private schools as well, deserve the right of music and art education. Studies show that music and art develops kids with creativity. Music and art education also helps students in other subjects. There for, that is why in my opinion, all students should be educated in the arts.
Music and art not only help children express themselves but adults too. The schools fund all the "important" stuff like math and reading WHY NOT MUSIC AND ART. I'm a choir student and music helps my mind get off everything else like hard tests. MUSIC AND ART SHOULD BE FUNDED.
Music and art education provide a great outlet for children to express themselves, and give them an opportunity to find a new talent. I know many kids who are happy to go to school purely because they get to do an art project or play a new piece in music class. Also research has shown that student who participate in music and art programs in school often do better on tests than students who don't.
They should allow music and art education in school because you can concentrate more on what you are doing you can get your grades up they also should allow are because you are going to need it more in life. For example when you need to write better or when you want to draw.
They are able to be creative in their own way. Not all students are able to do sports, either they have an injury or are just not able to participate because of their parents work or they don't want them to. Students can express themselves in other ways than in sports. May be able to let energy out if they needed to. Music can make students use their brain more using hand-eye coordination. Sometimes you might get a break with their school curriculum.
It waste our time and we are back in studies .Instead of this if we learn gk it will helpful in our whole life.We can go in kbc and there we will get money and it would be helpful in whole life .So we pay our attention on studies not in this
Art and music class contribute nothing to the well being of the student. They are a drain on the economy, they cost far too much to run and what do they get us? They give us a generation of kids who are banking on a music career when they should be counting on a career that actually pays with money and not weed.
Music and art can sometimes get in the way of students educations. When the chorus club is singing at the local mall but the student has a 5 page essay due the next day! Students should focus on their classes that they are required to take and pass. I don't think schools should provide music and art education
