Nowadays achievements are considered as one of the most significant MUST HAVES of contemporary life style. Even though some part of the society consider Musical Achievements as not too serious, there have been a number of studies done on the effect of music on academic development.
It has been shown that high school music students have higher grade point averages than none- music students in the same school. At Mission Viejo High School in Southern California in 1981, the overall grade point average of music students was 3.59 and for non-music students, the overall grade point average was 2.91.
A study of graduates of the New York City School of Performing Arts found that 90% of them go on to college.
The survey says that involvement in high school music programs helps students develop the skills necessary for a variety of occupations: "Successful music students tend to possess the qualities and skills that are generally considered essential to employers in business, education and service organizations. Also, recognizes that music education assists students in improving their writing, communication skills and DOES improve analytical skills". They further state that to be successful in music, takes a great deal of self-discipline and notes that “music majors have the highest SAT scores in all areas”.
Success in college can be more accurately predicted by levels of individual achievements in student activities (music) than it can from SAT scores, class rank and grades in school. Conversely, studies of dropout students show that these students have had the least amount of participation in school activities.
All mentioned above contributes to the opinion that Music achievements are vital for the students development and future success.
