I have been thinking about writing an article to give out to my parents at school about why it is important that we have Music as a specialist subject.
However why reinvent the wheel when a wonderful colleague of mine, Janice Tuck, from The Fun Music Company emailed one to me this morning.
She has written an article advocating the 6 things parents should know about music and why it is important children take part in it.

If the research is there to say that music education not only exercises both sides of the brain but enables our students to work at a higher standard in other curriculum areas, isn’t it a no-brainer that we as parents and educators advocate for Music to be a vital part of our weekly curriculum?
