Why Music?

  • The arts don’t focus on right and wrong. They open our mind to the possibility that there is more than one way to achieve a goal.
  • The arts are inherently creative. They allow us to see the big picture and allow us to creatively develop new ways and alternatives to achieve the big picture and end goal.
  • They emphasize practice and preparation and teach us not to shy away from persisting through challenges toward mastery
  • They focus on feedback and critique. It helps us to understand that feedback should not be taken personally but makes us aware of what we are capable of achieving.
  • They allow us to celebrate a moment of success for a job well done.
  • Help us cope with stress. Performing arts activities can be naturally calming.
