Students in music programs scored 107 points
higher on the SAT's than students with no
participation.

  • The US Department of Education data on
    more than 25,000 secondary school
    students found that students who report
    consistent high levels of involvement in
    instrumental music over the middle and
    high school years show "significantly higher
    levels of mathematics proficiency by grade
    12"

1,200 children in 50 that schools students involved
in the music program were better at languages,
learned to read more easily, showed an improved
social climate, showed more enjoyment in school,
and had a lower level of stress than non-music
students.

Over 100 new friends in a new
place and these friendships are
known to last a lifetime!
