The Benefits of Music

Researchers at the University of California at Irvine found
that children who received music instruction or actively
participated in music-
making showed increased abstract reasoning skills.

Children who make music get along better with others and have fewer discipline problems.

Children who study a musical instrument learn about discipline, dedication, and the rewards of hard work.

Researchers at McGill University in Canada found that children who took piano lessons demonstrated improved spatial and cognitive development.

“Music is one way for young people to connect with themselves, but it is also bridge for connecting with others. Through music, we can introduce children to the richness and diversity of the human family and to the myriad rhythms of life.”
