Debate topic

did you know there are some people out there that dare to say that music should not be a subject,

 

firstly what is the point of school, its to prepare you for life after school life in the real world right? well thats fine if you want to become a scientist or maybe an english teacher but what happens if you want to go into the music industry and schools did not teach you music,  first of all the school would not be doing its job because it would not be preparing you for life out of school                    ………..

a few years ago there were not many jobs in the music industry exclusive so you either had to be very lucky or very skilled to get a well paied job in but nowdays the music industry is huge and there are many legit jobs that students can aspire to.  in order to go into these jobs we need to be training students from an early age so that they have the skills to fill these rolls. so in this case teching kids music  is just as important as teaching kids science or math

music is self expression which has been proven to hep depression and anxiety.  so really shouldint everyone be encouriging music in schools since up to 20% of teens experiance some form of depression before they reach adaulthood and  since suicide kills more teens than anything else around the world. I also would have thought that espeshilly people from new zealand  whould would be encouriging music in schools as new zealand has the highest rates of suicide in the world. now this is a very depressing fact but writing origional music has been proved to have health and emotional benifits over a number of studies that may be able to improve this sustistic and a new study has shown that learning a music instument even when you are in your teens can result in impovved neural processing of sound and better laungage skills and can also improve adolescent brain development.so why would these people not want to encourage music in schools

musicions are some of the most influentual people on the planet so do these people that say music should not be a subject not want to give our students the skills they need to express themselvs through music as the musicions we look up to do .  do they not want students to go on to become influential to the next generation through there self expression in music. or do they believe our students should not have a voice should not be able to express themselvs

now i know playing music has certianly impoved my life and i hope the same will be said for genertions to come

Music is not a real subject

Against

cant beleve people could say music is not subject

some people say music is not a real subject

when we are young we are told that we grow up to be whatever we want

Zookeper Astronaught Rockstar

get to highschool

and we have many insparation speakers tell us to follow carres the we like and to follow our dreams

but the at the same time people are also going to say music is not subject

well what if your dream is to be a musiction

contridicting everyhing else people have told us and also the point of school is to prepare us

School is supposed to prepare us for getting jobs and for getting in unis and such and now a days there are many legit jobs in the music industry such as

  • Club DJ. Record Producer. Background Singer. Radio DJ. Conductor. Music Producer. Songwriter. A&R Coordinator. MusicTherapist. Session Musician. Recording Engineer. Music Teacher. MusicDirector.

all of these jobs need a very good basic knowlege of music and some of them need a very high music qualification but how will anyone be prapared to go into these jobs if we are not taught music at school.

points to follow

music is self expression which schools should be encouringing since up to 20% of teens experiance some form of depression before they reach adaulthood and since suicide kills more teens than anything else around the world. I also would have thought that people from new zealand  whould have thought of this seeing as new zealand has the highest rates of suicide in the world. But i guess the people who say music should not be a subject just dont care about that.

  • it has been proven over many studies with constant results that songwriting has benifts to health
  • Fewer stress-related visits to the doctor’s office
  • Improvement on a number of immune system functions
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improved lung function
  • Improved liver function
  • Improved short-term memory
  • Improved sport performance
  • Fewer work days lost to illness
  • Fewer days spent in the hospital overall

and that it also has many great benifits emotionally such as many musicions reported having

  • Improved mood/affect
  • Better overall psychological well-being
  • Less depressive/anxiety symptoms before exams
  • Fewer post-traumatic intrusions
  • Fewer avoidance symptoms.

it has also been proven that students who write og music have a higher grade point averge and since all school is is getting good grades so theirfore why wouldint schools want their students to be taught music if it is benifiting their grades in a positive way.

a recent surprising survey in the United States education board reveals that the result of the schools who does not have musical course has more number of drug addiction and criminal cases. fact checkkkkkk

 

i think some of the bands in our year including my own may be some of the most disorganised groups of students in the school but somehow our bands manage to write and practice origional songs and covers together to peform

 

this can actially be quite a struggle at times but i think it can teach students an important lession in orginisation and also in working together to write songs  can be struggle at times

also does anyone here not enjoy listening to there fav music well some of  your fav songs may never have been written if those bands or musicions had not taken music in school

the benifits that learning an instirment early on in childhood are alredy well reserched but a new study has shown that learning a music instument even when you are in your teens can result in impovved neural processing of sound and better laungage skills and can also improve adolescent brain development.
