This recognition of music as a subject shows that it is not considered altogether an extra-curricular activity. PUBLIC SCHOOL MUSIC is a clean emotional outlet; a means of self-expression and Inspiration for the individual; a means of aesthetic development; means of developing team—play, cooperation, mutual respect and helpfulness, a social agency, creating goodwill and community spirit for the school and a means of acquainting the child with the best music and musicians.
