Challenge: 38% of 18-24 year
olds report previously
having music education
One of the main challenges of providing
music in schools is a lack of funding for
instructors as well as performance space
and musical instruments. The scarcity of
funding is a particularly daunting
challenge for low-income students who
often lack the means to pay for private
music lessons or personal instruments.
Research states that this absence can
create problems with cognitive development,
teambuilding skills as well as connections
to math and science.
