Wisdom of Waldorf – The Value of Music

20192020_DWS_by_Sarah_Box_grades_class-006

This week’s article was published in Psychology Today. At a time when music and art are considered unnecessary or tangential to an education that is designed to support these next generations in preparing for the future, the research presented in this article found evidence of positive relationships between school music participation and high school exam scores in English, mathematics, and science.

Rather than tangential, music has been and is an integral part of the Waldorf curriculum from pre-school through high school. Not because it’s presumed that every student will pursue it as a career, but for many of the reasons discovered in this research.
