Different Boxes: Music for Children: Out of the Box - Neurodevelopmental and Behavioural Society of Australiasia

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Entry into the Musical World is often given mystical qualities. The status of our great musicians is often god-like. And yet Music is one of the most fundamental needs. We sing almost before we can talk, and we are surrounded by music every day of our lives. We now know that we all benefit, spiritually and physically, from our engagement with music. Particularly striking outcomes are seen in children; socially, academically and even physically. Musicians have always defined their role culturally, but recent studies have indicated a many more reasons for every child to engage with music – even more so for those who are NOT labelled as “talented”. Why should music be a a basic right for every child?
