Anyone who teaches music knows how powerful music education can be to our students. However, when difficult decisions within schools need to be made, it can be hard to prove to others the value that music holds in the education system, even though we inherently know this value. This session will share with you the latest research on music education through the lenses of cognitive development, social emotional learning, and mental health. We will be sharing with everyone the key points and amazing results of current research in an easy-to-digest format so that you will be prepared to educate the people around you about the importance of music education for all students, and how it should be implemented for use as a cognitive, emotional, and social intervention within schools.
Target audience: Music teachers K-12
