Why is music education important?

amyplaystuba:

There is the answer that school boards and narrow minded parents want to hear: it helps brain functions and is correlated with higher test scores.

Then there is the true answer: School sucks and music makes it suck less. Music education gives students the opportunity to make friends and have fun and learn an art. Art helps us put meaning to our lives. I have never been able to capture the sunrise in a math problem, but it can be captured in song. No science lesson describes the pain of a breakup, but a melody can. English comes the closest but when I took english it wasn’t about having or expressing emotions, it was about ripping apart each word to figure out some secret code that may not even be there. Yes, music requires you to be analytical, technical, and painfully detailed, but if you don’t put heart into it, it can not be called good music. Music is a vent and a source. It teaches us to cope and to express and it shows us the emotions we hid from ourselves. Music and the other arts are the only things in school that allow us to even have emotions.

For me, personally, it was the only thing I really had to work for and it was the only thing that I felt like I should be proud of. I got incredible grades and was one of the best at a very intelligent high school, and teachers were telling me I should be a writer, a doctor, a mathematician. I chose to be a music teacher because it was the only thing that kept me from going insane.

Music education is important because we drive kids to the edge of insanity and beyond for the sake of “education” and “their future” and often music is the only thing keeping them from absolutely losing their minds. Music education keeps us sane.

THE EVOLUTION OF POP

"Do I listen to pop music because I’m miserable or am I miserable because I listen to pop music?" - John Cusack

A compilation of 160 chart-topping pop songs, beginning in 1940 and ending 73 years later. 
All songs were at the top of the Billboard 100 for at least two weeks. It’s the ultimate throwback.

The title is shit but I’m gonna listen to this whole thing

The title is intentionally shit, inspired by 2004 Xanga/Quizilla.  It was either this or “I Can Haz 2004 Musik?” and I went with the lesser of two evils.

you can’t play flute? or violin? you don’t know how to play three concertos on piano? man, stop calling yourself a musician, you’re not a REAL musican. this “rock” shit isn’t music. power chords are so easy. real music is handel’s operas and beethoven’s symphonies. you can’t play those? you can’t sing der hölle rache? don’t call yourself a musician.

hi V. :) what are you favourite songs at the moment?

Hmmm, more or less the songs on my 2013 playlist!  Maybe also “Pompeii” by Bastille, “Wild Hearts” by The Vamps, and “Merry Happy” by Kate Nash.  I think “Burn” by Ellie Goulding and “Salute” by Little Mix were my favorite songs of last year, although obviously I love Union J’s oeuvre too.
