Music has a very large impact on not only the lives of adults and young adults, but for school age children as well. For many children playing an instrument in music class is a way to express themselves the way they want to or the way they are not always able to by themselves. For many children instruments are also a way to develop a talent and an interest in something at a young age rather than spending all of their time on social media networks and other online pollutants. But for some, music is a way to fit in. For example if you like rock music and you find another person that shares your interest in rock music, you will likely develop a friendship and other relations that were not available to you before. In conclusion these are the reasons why music is such a vast and vital part of the lives of people but especially school children.
