Abstract

The goal of this project was to collect and review existing data on the relationship between involvement in music and higher standardized test scores in math and science. Using this data to show the benefits of music involvement, an argument for keeping or increasing funding for music programs in schools in St. Croix of the U.S. Virgin Islands is made. Additionally a survey to assess the relationship in students on island has been constructed. Suggestions for how to conduct the survey and distribution are included.
