The Impact of Music on UK Youth

How Music Elevates Learning and Wellbeing

In the ever-changing rhythm of life, music holds a unique power to enrich the lives of young people in the UK. At Rewise, our commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR) aligns seamlessly with our dedication to nurturing the potential of youth. In this blog, we explore the transformative influence of music on learning and wellbeing among young people in the UK, supported by key statistics.

Music as a Learning Catalyst

1. Cognitive Advancement

Music actively stimulates cognitive development. A study by the University of London found that students engaging with music excel in subjects like mathematics and science, thanks to enhanced problem-solving skills.

In the UK, 75% of teachers believe that students who participate in music programs perform better academically (University of Cambridge survey).

2. Concentration Booster

Music aids concentration. The University of Wales found that students who study with background music can sustain focus for longer periods.

82% of primary school teachers in the UK reported that music enhances student concentration (Classic FM survey).

3. Emotional Intelligence Builder

Music nurtures emotional intelligence. Engaging with music develops skills such as empathy, self-awareness, and emotional regulation.

76% of young people involved in music projects in the UK reported improved emotional well-being (Youth Music report).

Music and Wellbeing

1. Stress Alleviator

Music reduces stress and anxiety, providing much-needed relief to young individuals facing modern-day pressures.

Music therapy reduced depression and anxiety symptoms in 82% of participants (British Journal of Psychiatry study).

2. Confidence Booster

Music enhances self-esteem and self-confidence, providing young people with a platform for self-expression and achievement.

73% of young people involved in music projects in the UK experienced an increase in self-esteem (National Foundation for Youth Music).

3. Social Connector

Music fosters social connections and a sense of belonging, combating loneliness among young people.

63% of young people in the UK felt more connected to peers through music-related activities (Royal Philharmonic Orchestra survey).

In summary, music is a powerful force for academic achievement, emotional well-being, and social connection among young people in the UK. Through our CSR efforts, Rewise aims to harness this transformative power, helping the youth thrive in a harmonious future.
