Music education ‘creates more well-rounded people’
From BBC news, Jazz star YolanDa Brown says pressure must be brought to bear on politicians to understand the social benefits of music education.
This is not what has been happening in the UK. In March, the BPI said English state schools have seen a 21% drop in music provision in the last five years.
YolanDa believes that music education is “part of our personal development, team-working, understanding cultures and people and the education system and the powers that be [need to] understand that it creates more well-rounded people.”
So what do you think? Should more music education also be provided in Hong Kong?
