When it comes to cutting school district budgets, extracurricular activities are the first on the chopping block. Many districts made the error years ago to cut their music programs, but they replaced them when they realized how much incentive losing the music program took away from their students. Whether or not people realize it, music is a fundamental part of education, and most schools today do maintain at least a minimal music program.
There are many different facets of music for students to participate in and enjoy at school, and the cost of them can be quite low compared to their actual value. These programs often include at least a once per week music class for all students, a choir or choral group, and a band program. Each of these musical programs has the ability to help students learn other facets of their education, and all of them are enjoyed by students across the globe.
