Why is music education important?

Why is English (or any other language) education important?
Why is Mathematics education important?
Why is Computer education important?
Why is any education important?
Without education, knowledge will not be passed on to future generations, and ultimately the knowledge will be lost.
You know what they say: "Use it or lose it."

well all of those that u mentioned are required by law. Until high school. Music has no meaning if you learn the same thing over and over again and not remember anything.

It's good for children to have exposure to music of all kinds.
You never can tell - some children might be bored silly, others will like it. Some child might want to learn to play the violin, trumpet, drums, who knows.
Remember, future singers, musicians, and yes audiences have to come from somewhere.

"Required by law" or not.... the question was "why are they important", not "why are they taught at all".
And I have to ask.... If you are taught the same thing over and over again and you do not remember anything, have you really "learned" it? There's a difference between "being taught" something and "having learned" something.

Maybe it seems that the same thing is being taught over and over. It could be that some of your classmates are not paying attention and some are. From what you have written I would guess that most of you are fooling around.
A teacher can present the material to you and your classmates, but all of you have to put some effort in the learning process. It's a two-way street. Sometimes repition is a good thing. What wasn't clear at first changes to "Oh so that's what she/he means" and so it goes.
Try to keep an open mind, I know it's not the easiest thing to do, but someday you will look back on these classes and be happy that you had to study music.

Over and over? Just yesterday teaching staff were told to start preparation for the end of year exam, and in my first class to start revision, the very first question was ""Why are we doing all this all over again??"
As for writing what has already been written? That way it sticks in the memory.

I understand the more you do something the better you get,but we should learn what was planned not what we know. We were suppose to learn about the musical Madam Butterfly. All we did was read one line then we left and said we were gonna start it again next week. Well next week came and we started singing Ocome all ye faithful in latin for a Cd we are gonna make. When we have music class some of us don't wanna go because they don't want to join band so they shouldn't have music. Band starts in 4th grade and is accepting new member from 4-6th grades. Well being in 8th grade we have already made the choice of not joining band so there is no use for us to learn music in music class. I'm not one thats hate music because I love playing different instruments. Music class in my school consist of singing songs and learning about operahs and listening to christian music. I want to learn Music theory not music class. I will take music theory in high school but I wished I could start now.
