The WCM will be hosting an interactive Children’s Area at the Festival…come out and see what this exciting new addition to Playland has in store!

By the end of Year 6, students explain how the elements of music are used to communicate meaning in the music they listen to, compose and perform. The students had learned more from this lesson because they were able to use all styles of learning and were taught from an angle which is rarely used, through the arts.
A study published in 2007 by Christopher Johnson, professor of music education and music therapy at the University of Kansas, revealed that students in elementary schools with superior music education programs scored around 22 percent higher in English and 20 percent higher in math scores on standardized tests, compared to schools with low-quality music programs, regardless of socioeconomic disparities among the schools or school districts.
FYI on average the smallest amount of a school’s budget goes to music education and the other performing arts. As a graduate with degrees in arts and music you could pursue a career in the arts sector, performance, music instruction or composing, or in interdisciplinary roles, such as production, arts management, policy or coaching.
The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree with a major, minor, or honours in music includes core music courses similar to the bachelor of music degree, but does not include private instrumental or vocal instruction though all UBC students are eligible to audition for student ensembles.
