|While it has been admitted that art and music have played an integral part in human life for centuries, many peole have concerned the disappearance of art and music due to the emergence of advanced technology. In my opinion, art and music are still of importance in modern societies, and art and music subjects should also be taught at schools.
It is clear that there is no way art and music can disappear for many reasons. First, they always play an important role in people’s lives in terms of making people entertained. In fact, in retrospect, ancestors knew how to release their pressure and develop their mental health by listening to music or creating artworks, and this has been maintained until now. Especially in this modern world, humans can need music and art more than ever. Plenty evidence has suggested that with the development of technology, humans have put more emphasis on working and boosting productivity, causing more depression and pressure, thereby they do need music and art to keep work-life balance.
Regrading teaching art and music at schools, I believe that they should be included in didactic programs. This is because art subjects help develop children fully besides academic subjects, not to mention unlocking artistic potential of students. In fact, not only can students develop their right brain from learning art subjects, but they also obtain creativity and social skills. Nevertheless, it is also recommended that how much time students should spend on learning art and music should depend on children’s preference. Those who are eager for art subjects can spend more time to practice, but those who are not talented for art and music should be encouraged to spend time learning other subjects.
In conclusion, despite the development of technology, art and music are still needed, even more in this modern world. While children should be taught about art and music at schools, it is them who can decide the amount of time spent on this.
