Majority agree with 'benefits of music playing'
The vast majority of people believe there are benefits to children learning to play musical instruments, a new poll has shown.
Gallup was commissioned by the National Association of Music Merchants (Namm) in the US to carry out a survey, which revealed 97 per cent of people either strongly or completely agree that music can help to develop creativity.
In addition, 96 per cent feel playing in a school band can assist children to develop team working skills, while 93 per cent believe music can help them to make friends.
A further 88 per cent said music can boost school performance and 94 per cent think it can help kids to relax.
The survey, entitled 2009 Public Attitudes Towards Music, was published ahead of Wanna Play Music Week, which gets underway in the US on May 4th.
Encouraging people to take up music is among Namm's core directives. Last year at the Summer Namm Show it gave an award to Bob McGrath of Sesame Street for his efforts to introduce children to music during his four-decade long career.Posted on 1 May 2009 16:18 to category : Music News
