Enhancing general music programs to support teachers and inspire students

There’s no denying the positive impact of music on young people, both in their development and throughout the rest of their lives. Consider these facts:

  • Students of music perform better on standardized tests. Research from The College Entrance Examination Board found that students involved in public school music programs scored 107 points higher on the SAT’s than students with no participation. (The College Board, 2002)
  • Graduation rates soar alongside participation in music. According to a Harris Interactive poll, schools with music programs have an estimated 90.2% graduation rate and 93.9% attendance rate compared to schools without music education, which average 72.9% graduation and 84.9% attendance. (Harris Interactive, 2006)
  • Music reaches all student groups. In fact, experts say African American and Latino students do better in school, have higher graduation rates and a better chance of getting into college when exposed to music education on an ongoing basis throughout their K-12 education.
