Music encourages creativity and expression. It allows people to develop the ability to make choices and form opinions and preferences. I believe that music gives you feelings of self-confidence and a sense of accomplishment. It teaches self-expression, leadership skills, and helps students develop traits that will aid in their success throughout their entire lives.
