21 June is World Music Day

Music is a valuable subject for all to study whether you are a gifted musician or have never engaged in music outside of school. Music’s place in education has important wider benefits on personal and social development building confidence, self-esteem, sense of achievement and ability to relate to others as part of a community.

Music can positively affect our physical and mental wellbeing. It has strong connections to religion and also complements the wider agenda of emotional health and wellbeing – it can help change the way we feel.
