Music Education in the school systems is on a decline with a lack of funding and budget cuts. For me as a kid growing up not only did music help me build confidence and become a creative thinker, it also helped me become more social, set goals and achieve the goals I set, gave me direction, taught me responsibility, respect etc... I could go on for days and list how music helped me as a kid, teenager, and even as an adult... maybe in another blog. I will say that for me personally music education played a huge role in my life and it still does as a drum instructor today. The funny thing is now that I'm an adult and teach drum lessons privately I can see from the other side the incredible benefits that music lessons and music education have on students of all ages.
