i don't like when people justify teaching music by saying it makes you smarter in math/science/etc. like... i think we should teach music for MUSIC's sake, not because it is a tool for other subjects. anyways though, i think this justification is ok. i especially like the "music is art" part.

I strongly believe music is underestimated for the power in helping the brain in so many ways! We need to increase opportunities in music & arts!!!! <3=<3
