Did you take piano lessons as a kid? Or maybe you sang in your church’s choir. Maybe your parent played an instrument, or maybe you went to Mummy & Me music classes at your local community centre? All of these seemingly benign bonding exercises are examples of childhood music education, a vital tool in the building of a full-grown human, even if it doesn’t seem like it at first glance.

Not every child is a musical genius, and not everyone who takes music classes or lessons when they’re a child grows up to be musically skilled—or even to be someone who continues to play or participate in music as an adult. But plenty of very qualified people will tell you that’s not the point of music education. We need it for so much more than the sake of learning music itself. Full story.
