Music teaches discipline, re-enforces math skills and generally opens the world up to children. My husband has been a music teacher for more than 30 years and has seen first hand how important music is. For some kids, it's the only reason they show up in school.

This is one petition that will act as a barometer of how government listens to The People.

you are luckier than TURKİSH school children, in TURKEY almost there are no music lessons.almost banned all activities because of religious government. the new system of shool programmes depending on religious subjects. no music no fun.

Even past the importance of the benefits of arts learning to developing minds, we cannot walk away from our culture. That act of walking away will add to the volume of our cultural output, and what we say/leave of ourselves, to future generations over the longer run.

As my High School band teacher used to say: "Teach a kid to blow a horn and he won't blow a safe"! Still rings true in many cases. Music education is important.
