American Falls High School Music
Why do Music?
There are so many wonderful reasons to joint the band or choir. Having the skill to perform musical instruments and sing has been one of the most cherished accomplishments throughout history. Students who decide to learn to play an instrument and sing can use this skill and knowledge for the rest of their lives. There is nothing like the joy of performing music with friends. It happens every day in school groups and continues for adults who still perform in community choirs, bands, orchestras or for those who perform professionally. In all cases, performing music can be an exhilarating experience.
Aside from the obvious benefits of playing a music instrument or learning to sing, there are a number of surprising academic benefits to students who study music. Students who take lessons on an instrument at a young age stimulate the brain in a unique way. Studies have shown that learning to play an instrument enhances a student's academic performance in math, language arts, foreign language and other academic areas. Even standardized test scores, such as the SAT are higher among musicians.
Whatever the reason, playing an instrument or learning to sing can bring joy and fulfillment like no other activity. The most common remark from parents, following a wonderful school concert is, "I wish my parents wold have encouraged me to learn music and stick with it."
