Emotional Intelligence is Fundamental in Arts Education

Music and arts education in general is a means to not only entertain, but also to convey the plight of struggles with self, others and society. The arts unite people and provide channels for expressing ideas and sentiment. Moreover, the disciplines within arts education involve regular practice to improve skills which helps students with self-control and perseverance. Some sources also point out that arts education helps facilitate diversity as well. The inclusion of arts education in STEM education, or STEAM, can enhance creativity and improve social skills, including respect and working cooperatively with others. It can provide creative outlets that may otherwise go unexplored.
