Music Workshops for Education
Our workshops deliver more than just music.
A music-rich experience presents real benefits to children when delivered as part of their education, encouraging a balanced and well rounded experience for your students and teachers.
Musical learning further supports all learning.
Music in education can help to develop auditory and visual skills, team work, coordination and communication. Focussed on ‘doing’ rather than observing, engage your students in a physically and mentally involved activity. This stimulating and fun experience delivers measurable benefits across all subjects and adheres to the National Curriculum.
Music gets us talking.
Music has been proven to benefit language development, especially in younger children. Children have a natural ability to absorb and understand sounds and words, music education helps to further develop those abilities.
Recent studies have indicated that musical training helps develop a part of the left side of the brain, which is known to be involved with processing language. This contributes to better social skills as language is a basic skill required in social competence.
For the love of music.
Music is universal. Everywhere we go music is a part of how we experience things, it’s omnipresent in our society. Why would we not want to understand a little more about how it works? Listening to and being involved in music is a very human thing to do, it’s a part of our culture and it’s fun.
Department for Education – A National Plan for Music Education.
“A number of studies have demonstrated the positive impact music can have on personal and social development, including increased self reliance, confidence, self-esteem, sense of achievement and ability to relate to others”
“Evidence also suggests a link between mathematics and music, but there needs to be a stronger match between the skills being used – for example some types of music education can encourage improvement in some elements of maths more effectively than others. Studies have also shown a connection between music and increased scores in IQ. In both cases it is rhythmic music training that has been shown to make the greatest improvement”
Let’s look at the Statistics.
“Clearly, music supports academic performance, and quality music programs are related to higher test scores.” Dr. Christopher Johnson – Associate dean of the School of Fine Arts at the University of Kansas.
A study funded by NAMM Foundation under its “Sounds of Learning” initiative revealed a strong relationship between a students’ academic achievement and their participation in school music programs. The study collated data from 4,739 schools over four U.S regions in 2007.
Elementary schools that invested in providing quality music programs found their students performed 22% better in English and 20% better in mathematics when compared to their peers in schools delivering deficient music programs.
