Music surrounds us in everyday life, and it is essential that we provide students with a toolkit for understanding and experiencing music on a deeper level. Active music making enriches students' lives and fosters a love of the subject, building imagination and intellectual curiosity. Research indicates that studying music also benefits students’ studies in all other subjects including developing language and reasoning, mastery of memorisation, increased coordination, emotional development, pattern recognition, self-discipline, special awareness, teamwork and self-confidence.
