 Recent studies found that studying and playing musical instruments:

  • Facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills.

  • Helps develop the part of the left side of the brain known to be involved with processing language.

  • Leads to increases in the IQs of six-year-olds who are given weekly voice and piano lessons.

  • Improves neural activity. When you’re a musician and you’re playing an instrument, you are using more of your brain.

  • Improves sound discrimination and fine motor tasks.

  • Is linked to improved spatial intelligence. Understanding music helps children visualize various elements that should go together, like they would do when solving a math problem.

  • Helps children score higher in English and math scores on standardized tests.

  • Helps with basic memory recall.
