Music has many benefits, but it’s not always a priority in schools.
Music has been proven to lift moods, improve blood flow, lower stress and raise dopamine (feel-good chemicals in the brain).
It’s one of the only things that works both sides of the brain. Even the Government has said it can change lives.
But it’s also very expensive to teach, and not all young people want to learn about music. Some people think more time should be spent on learning other subjects instead.
