Why does Germany attach so much importance to music education?

The benefits of learning music for children are manifold.

According to research conducted by Mary Luehrisen, executive director of the National Association of Music Business Foundation (NAMM), learning music can help students learn other subjects well and enhance children's necessary abilities in other fields.

Luehrisen believes that "for children from 2 to 9 years old, music plays a very good role in promoting language development at this age". When children are exposed to the world, they need to encode sounds and words. Music education helps strengthen their natural coding skills. "An environment with music is very beneficial to children's language development." Luehrisen added that those natural abilities need to be "strengthened, practiced and encouraged." Music education at home and school can improve these natural abilities.

The above data is only a small part that shows the benefits of learning music. Therefore, giving children proper music education is conducive to the healthy growth of children's body and mind.
