Did You Know? A Music Advocacy Presentation

In honor of Music in Our Schools Month, and to continue our efforts to raise awareness of the importance of music education, Pepper would like to share this video.

It’s a phenomenal compilation of the results of so many of the studies conducted which revolve around comparisons between students who participate in music versus those who do not.  If you are looking for a tool to enhance a music advocacy presentation of your own, then this video is highly recommended.  Some facts of note:

  • Music participants receive more academic honors and awards than non-music students.  (National Center for Education Statistics, 1990)
  • Reading or composing music particularly engages both sides of the brain.  Music in the curriculum…may be a valuable tool for the integration of thinking across both hemispheres of the brain. (Brain-Based Learning, by Eric Jensen, 2008)
  • High school music students score higher on the SAT in both verbal and math than their peers (The College Board, Profile of College-Bound Seniors National Report for 2006)
