Building on the first release of Music Matters in 2011, the Arts Education Partnership reviewed multiple research studies identified within ArtsEdSearch — the national clearinghouse of rigorous arts education research — to explore the importance of music on student learning outcomes. This updated resource explores the demonstrated effects of music education and how it helps students develop the foundational capacities for lifelong success.
This report is part of AEP’s “Arts Matter” series describing the researched benefits of arts education. AEP has renamed the series “Arts Counts” in positive recognition of the Black Lives Matter movement.
