I believe music should not stay in our school system because it is unnecessary to today's society please counter my statements if you can and thank you.

I believe music is a very important part of any school system and there are a few reasons for that. Music classes promote team work which is one of the most important skills for any member of society to have. Music allows student to express themselves creatively and for a lot of students there music classes are the reason they want to go to school. Music also promotes open minded thinking and problem solving, Say your playing a piece of music and can't get a certain part down if your passionate about music you will try to learn better ways to practice so you can learn your part more efficiently which in the long run will help develop better study skills.

Every other subject does that if not better. In my personal situations music had very little teamwork compared to math and science. And these subjects help you get a job not music.

Music allows student to express themselves creatively and for a lot of students there music classes are the reason they want to go to school.

Well I'm sorry but they need to grow up. Today's society doesn't care about good you are at music. To make money you need to study Math And Science And English.

Music also promotes open minded thinking and problem solving, Say your playing a piece of music and can't get a certain part down if your passionate about music you will try to learn better ways to practice so you can learn your part more efficiently which in the long run will help develop better study skills.

Nothing you can't do in Math and science. Wich will actually help you in life like I previously stated.

One, You act like making money is everyone's top priority in life but I think most people would rather have a career that makes them happy. There are many jobs in the music industry. A lot of the worlds most successful musicians started playing in school and that is one of the reasons they are so successful. Also could you imagine life without any music that would just be plain boring.

Okay well you can only live if you make money. That is how society is today. And the chances someone strikes it rich or even enough money on the music career is rare. If kids enjoy music so much they can do it extra curricular

There are so many careers in music you could be a music teacher for grade school, Band teachers, Orchestra teachers, You could be in a travailing sympathy, You can be a marching band instructor for collage and high school and some times even grade school, The people who make little jingles for commercials. Just because you aren't a celebrity musician doesnt mean there are not normal paying jobs for people with musical training and there are so many more then what I just named off.

If kids enjoy music so much they can do it extra curricular.

Some kids can't do extra curricular activities because they take place after school, There are a lot of students who's parents are unable to pick them up after school and if that school doesnt have a late bus after school they can't get home. Some students may have after school jobs or may just not be aloud to do after school activities. Most the classes you take in school you could teach yourself online the internet replaces a lot of these classes, If someone really wanted to learn math or sciences and was truly motivated they could learn by just reading tutorials on google. Someone wanting to learn music could maybe do the same but a lot of students can only get a instrument by borrowing one from a school and a musical instrument is hard to learn without any instruction.
