MUSIC’S INFLUENCE Josh Balliet 4/5/13 Cas 100A OVERVIEW My Experience My Viewpoint Counter- Arguments Three Supporting Reasons Conclusion MY EXPERIENCE MY VIEWPOINT From previous experience and research it has led me to believe that everyone should let music have a great influence in their lives. If more people are educated in music through classes, learning instruments, listening exercises, etc., then people will become more educated, mindful and healthy. COUNTER-ARGUMENTS People can make an argument saying music influence's everyone’s life by simply listening to it. However music only has true influence when it is fully understood. It is more necessary for people to be trained in the arts such as writing, designing, etc. However, music is necessary as well. Budget Cuts THREE REASONS WHY I. Knowledge in music is shown to help students in the class setting, especially with mathematics and sciences. II. Music helps people be more mindful and appreciate the values of life and the things that surround it. III. People who let music have a great influence in their lives are healthy. REASON 1 Knowledge in music is shown to help students in the class setting, especially with mathematics and sciences. STATISTICS AND FACTS “High school music students have been shown to hold higher grade point averages (GPA) than non -musicians in the same school.” ~ National Educational Longitudinal Study of 1988 “78% of Americans feel learning a musical instrument helps students perform better in other subjects .” ~ Gallup Poll, "American Attitudes Toward Music," 2003 “A study of 7,500 university students revealed that music majors scored the highest reading scores among all majors including English, Biology, Chemistry and Math.” ~ The Case for Music in the Schools, Phi Delta Kappa, 1994 STATISTICS AND FACTS (CONT.) “U.S. Depar tment of Education data show that students who repor t consistently high levels of involvement in instrumental music during the middle- and high-school year s show "significantly higher levels of mathematics proficiency by grade 1 2 .“” ~ James Catterall, Richard Chapleau, and John Iwanaga, "Involvement in the Ar ts and Human Development," 1999 “Music training helps under -achievers. Students lagging behind in scholastic per formance caught up to their fellow students in reading and surpassed their classmates in math by 22% when given music instruction over seven months .” ~ Nature, May 23, 1996 http://smhsmusic.org PERSPECTIVE FROM THE PARENTS 1) The Development in Creativity 97% 2) The Development in Intellect 94% http://www.b2rmusic.com 3) The Improvement in School Performance 88% WHAT QUALITIES HELP STUDENTS IN THE CLASS SETTING FROM MUSIC? Pattern Recognition Increases Awareness of Real-Life Science Applications Better Time Management & Organization http://www.amparents.org REASON 2 Music helps people be more mindful and appreciative of the values in life and the things that surround it. STATISTICS AND FACTS “During moments of musical euphoria, blood travels through the brain to areas where other stimuli can produce feelings of contentment and joy -and travels away from brain cell areas associated with depression and fear.” ~ Dr. Frederick Tims, reported in AMC Music News, June 2, 1999 “71% of Americans surveyed by the Gallup Poll believe that teenagers who play an instrument are less likely to have disciplinary problems.” ~ Gallup Poll, "American Attitudes Toward Music," 2003 STATISTICS AND FACTS (CONT.) “With music in schools, students connect to each other better greater camaraderie, fewer fights, less racism and reduced use of hurtful sarcasm.” ~ Eric Jensen, Arts With the Brain in Mind, 2001 “Nine out of ten adults and teenagers who play instruments agree that music making brings the family closer together.” ~ Music Making and Our Schools, American Music Conference, 2000 http://smhsmusic.org MUSIC’S EFFECT ON CRIME During 2004 London, England conducted a study where the police had music played over the speakers in the underground stations for six months straight. After, crimes dropped up to 37%. Cut in Crimes Vandalism 5% Robberies 37% 25% Staff Assaults Other 33% http://www.sixwise.com REASON 3 People who let music have a great influence in their lives are healthy. STATISTICS AND FACTS “Students who participate in school band or orchestra have the lowest levels of current and lifelong use of alcohol, tobacco and illicit drugs among any group in our society.” ~ H. Con. Res. 266, United States Senate, June 13, 2000 http://smhsmusic.org MUSIC AS A CLINICAL TOOL Studies are showing that music is an effective clinical tool that could be used to treat medical diagnoses such as: Alzheimer's Disease Autism Dementia Stroke Language Acquisition Dyslexia Coma http://tdlc.ucsd.edu MUSIC AS AN EVERYDAY TREATMENT Headaches Stress Anxiety Strengthening the Immune System http://www.cbc.ca CONCLUSION Music can have many positive ef fects to each of us.
