“Music – what a powerful instrument, what a mighty weapon!”– Maria August von Trapp

As rightly said above, we at Lawrence High School believe that music plays an integral role in one’s life as it is a way of expressing our feelings as well as emotions.

At Lawrence, students learn music in the early childhood years and so foster a positive attitude toward learning and curiosity. Artistic education develops the whole brain and develops a child’s imagination. The left side of the brain is better developed with music, and songs can help imprint information on young minds.

By learning music, our students develop a sense of achievement, increased coordination, creativity, self-confidence, emotional development and also fine tune their auditory skills. Above all, they learn a valuable lesson in discipline.

Our students are taught the skill of song writing and music composing which awakens the craftsmanship in them as they learn to want to create good work instead of mediocre work.

Another reason we believe music education is so important is that it integrates so many different subject areas all at once. Not only will music education allow children to develop their musical skills, it will also give them the opportunity to work on their math skills, reading and writing skills, science skills, and history knowledge.

Investing in creative education can prepare students for the 21st century workforce. The new economy has created more artistic careers, and these jobs may grow faster than others in the future.

In these recent times of Covid, though students are physically apart from their teacher and fellow classmates, we have gone one step ahead by connecting ourselves virtually, still keeping the sense of learning in the air. Music also being an enjoyable subject keeps our students interested and engaged even at home. Students are noticed to be performing to the fullest with more confidence as they are learning at the comfort of their home.
