1) It introduced you to the idea of wind instruments on an aerophone, which is extremely easy to learn (though professional recordists are fucking beasts)
2) It acts as a “gateway drug” to music in later life and furthers an education in music which, even if not pursued professionally, leads to numerous benefits later in life
3) It gave you a reason to become interested in musical notation, which promotes brain activity in the same areas that are activated when one learns another language and essentially acts as if one has, in fact, learned another language. This is particularly good because wow look at these benefits of learning another language (that aren’t related to communication or culture)
4) It was fucking fun. Applying one of the most basic psychological principles of classical conditioning, if one is trained to expect fun as a conditioned stimulus (recess, music class, etc) then instead of acting on a negative unconditioned response and protesting going to school (because of boring classes or bullying) kids will instead act through conditioned response and be more likely to go.
In conclusion, bite me OP.
