Title: Revisiting reasons for musical education: a discussion on music teaching focused in extra-musical development
Author: Caregnato, C
Abstract: The effects of the musical education on the development of people's motor coordination, cognition and socialization are constantly announced as arguments for the music education at school. Recently, such arguments have gained space on the Internet through the dissemination of an image containing '10 reasons to study music.' In this paper we discuss the scientific validity of three of these 'reasons', and the use of such arguments as justification for music education. Through a literature review focused on studies of transfer, we observed that the three 'reasons' have no scientific foundation sufficiently consolidated to testify in his favor, and those arguments are weak because they do not grant effects to music that cannot be obtained through other school subjects, and they also demand the teacher a mastery of extra-pedagogical skills.
