Do you think music lessons are important for children?
Exposure is good. Some people are not musicaally inclined. A program that exposes children that teches something quickly will pronanly be better than learning the mechanics would be more successful.
I think all children should learn appreciation for the arts. That being said, some people just aren't interested in music, art, dance, theatre, etc. I have so many friends who would rather beat their heads against a wall than attend an art showing for any length of time. And that is totally fine. I myself can't stand watching hockey, and have no real passion for sports in general. But I did play soccer when I was younger, and watched/cheered/supported my brother's various athletic pursuits. I have a real appreciation for sports, and the effort, talent, and skill of all athletes.
Children should be taught appreciation for the arts, but with the understanding that they don't have to love or be passionate about the arts to appreciate and understand what the arts contributes to society.
Yes. It helps widen their mind and use different parts of their brain to unlock their full potential. Every child should play at least one instrument.
Music opens the mind.
It can helps one to relax and reducing stress. Music can inject the power of our brain as it can induce my IQ.
Listening closely to music can bring you in tune with your body vibration.
I can't say that they are important, but they are certainly a good thing to experience as a child. Not only are the previous answerers to me have valid points, I'll have to add that musical instruments (in particular, the piano) is known to create more linkages in the brain (corpus callosum) between the left brain and the right brain, and allows both sides to be used (logical and creative). Not only will the child be culturally intelligent, but it will help them think and survive the education system and life.
A wholehearted yes! Music is the universal language. It is an artform that unites people, that calms the savage beast, that heals. It is an important part of every culture and should not be neglected. Music lessons teach appreciation of music and discipline. Music lessons provide children with a lifelong skill and source of enjoyment, whether they remain casual observers or become professional musicians. I come from a family of musicians and I believe we should not eliminate music from the school curriculum!
I think so, if nothing else just for the sake for exploring their talents and possibilities in the future. My niece sings very well, but as a child my sister didn't put her in music lessons, right now she is taking music lessons, but her music skills could be much more developed if she took them since a small child. If the child has no music inclination, eventually she will quit the music lessons anyway, but at least she tried it...
I think that if you can afford it, you should let them take lessons. Piano is a good start. After a year or 2 the option should be given to the child to continue/discontinue the lessons.
