Music in FWSU Schools

Music is a universal language that transcends boundaries and connects people across cultures. Music has the power to recreate memories, unknowingly start your foot tapping, or (hypothetically speaking) have you singing at the top of your lungs while you are in your car. Recognizing the importance of music education in fostering creativity, discipline, and cognitive skills, schools around the world have embraced music programs as an integral part of their curriculum. FWSU embraces a well-rounded education and a holistic development of students. 

We are grateful that our students can explore multiple aspects of music in their school days and lives. Our teachers bring a passion and love for music that is contagious. Our students are equally passionate and talented to boot. If you’ve had the opportunity to attend one of our concerts you know what I’m talking about. 


Music education has been linked to numerous cognitive benefits. Learning to play an instrument or participating in choir enhances memory, attention, and problem-solving skills. Studies have shown that students involved in music programs tend to perform better in subjects like mathematics and science, demonstrating the cross-disciplinary benefits of music education.

Participating in music programs fosters emotional expression and social development. Through group rehearsals, students learn teamwork, cooperation, and communication. Performing in front of an audience also helps build confidence and self-esteem. Moreover, the emotional depth conveyed through music allows students to connect with their own emotions and those of others, promoting empathy and understanding.


Learning to play an instrument or mastering a musical piece requires discipline and time management. Students involved in music programs develop a strong work ethic as they practice regularly and strive for improvement. These skills not only benefit their musical pursuits but also translate into other areas of their academic and personal lives.

One of the greatest gifts of music education is the ability to enjoy and create music throughout life. Whether students pursue music professionally or as a hobby, the skills and passion developed in music programs stay with them. Music becomes a lifelong source of joy, stress relief, and personal fulfillment.


It becomes clear that fostering a love for music is not just about creating musicians; it's about shaping well-rounded individuals ready to face the challenges of the world!
