Music education is a field of study associated with the teaching and learning of music. It touches on all domains of learning, including the psychomotor domain (the development of skills), thecognitive domain (the acquisition of knowledge), and, in particular and significant ways,the affective domain, including music appreciation and sensitivity. The incorporation of music training frompreschool to postsecondary education is common in most nations because involvement in music is considered a fundamental component of human culture andbehavior. Music, like language, is an accomplishmentthat distinguishes us as humans.[1]
