Music as a school subject is creative, social, physical and academic. It can provide children with a skill for life, whether in employment directly in the music industry or, more likely, in their leisure time. It promotes teamwork, self-confidence and a sense of achievement. In a world where instant gratification is often the norm, some musical activities, such as learning to play a musical instrument, help children to understand the value of patience and practice over a long period of time.
