Participation in extracurricular activities allows students to get involved in diverse activities. These activities promote social and academic success, foster a sense of commitment to a cause or purpose, and enhance life skills. This paper studies the effects of extracurricular musical education on primary school children. It also provides observations and the results of a brief survey of teachers. The findings reveal the benefits of extracurricular musical education in the development of schoolchildren as it enhances memory, augments creative and cognitive skills, improves imagination and increases emotional understanding and expression.
