The University of Florida has a very nice and compelling information page on their masters of music education program web page about all of the benefits of the study of music. It is a shame that music always seems to be the first thing to get cut when there are funding issues. I suppose it is because it is too hard to cut sports programs due to the built in large and vocal (since they get lots of practice screaming at games) advocacy group of fans and parents who find it distasteful to cut back on a “tradition” like football. The page is here.
