Some people in the education industry believe that all children should learn a musical instrument at school. I can’t entirely agree with this statement due to several reasons.
It might be rather expensive to learn music for some low-income families. Students need to practice playing the musical instrument at home so that their parents might need to buy the instrument they may not be able to afford. For example, it cost my friends’ parents fifty thousand pounds to buy a piano at home to let my friend practise his homework from his piano class at school. This amount of money was way too much for my parents; therefore, I did not choose to learn a musical instrument. Hence, learning a musical instrument can be unaffordable for some families.
In my opinion, some children do not have an interest in music or the talent for music so it might be harsh for them if music is a compulsory subject. It takes a considerable amount of time to learn to play a musical instrument. It may be somewhat challenging for some students interested in running or swimming to sit quietly and practise playing a musical instrument for several hours. Furthermore, some other students cannot learn music because they do not have the gifts. It might be great if they spend their time on some things they are good at, such as drawing or taking pictures.
In conclusion, I would argue that learning music might be beneficial for some students; however, I do not believe that all children should learn to play a musical instrument. (262 words)
