      Teaching Philosophy: Music Education incorporates many of the other subjects commonly taught in school. It involves math, reading, history and fine motor skills (so could also be associated with physical education. It can also be used to teach science and its association with social studies is apparent. Add the appreciation of one’s own culture and the discovery of the musicianship within many students I believe music (and the arts) to be as valuable as any other subject currently studied.
