Music is a powerful, unique form of communication that can change the way children feel, think and act. As an integral part of culture, past and present, it can help children to understand themselves and relate to others. The teaching of Music develops children’s ability to listen and appreciate a wide variety of music and to make judgments about musical quality. It encourages active involvement in different forms of music-making, helping children to acquire a sense of group identity and togetherness. Music increases self-discipline and creativity, aesthetic sensitivity and fulfillment.
