Because the district is so large, children have ample opportunities for learning. Both in and out-of-class experiences increase interest in the subject matter.

Chalk Talk: Why Children Need Music Education
After many districts across the nation cut back on the number of hours children spend in music education courses a few years ago, districts are recognizing once again the value that music courses have. Children that study music reap many academic benefits. Research shows that young musicians have improved math skills, both on individual assessments and in the grades they earn over the course of their studies. Students who take music classes also score higher on the SAT, outscoring their peers by 57 points on the verbal portion of the test and by 41 points on the math portion of the test. Music education has social benefits as well. Students who enroll in music courses demonstrate greater self-confidence and higher self-esteem than their peers. Music students are also referred for disciplinary action far less often than their peers.
