Research on Music Education
Research continues to show that music education has tremendous positive effects on the brains of children, and as a result, on their academic performance and general success later in life.
“Research shows that studying an instrument can help children excel in ways beyond the basic ABCs. Making music involves more than the voice or fingers playing an instrument; a child learning about music has to tap into multiple skill sets, often simultaneously. A University of Toronto study found an increase in the IQs of six-year-olds who were given weekly vocal or instrumental lessons.”
“Music improves academic skills… develops physical skills… cultivates social skills… refines discipline and patience… boosts self-esteem… introduces children to other cultures.”https://www.parents.com/kids/development/intellectual/6-benefits-of-music-lessons/
“New research provides more evidence that musical training enhances executive function, especially in the areas of cognitive flexibility, working memory, and processing speed, and this may explain the link to academic achievement.”https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/827116
“Music ignites all areas of child development: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. For children and adults, music helps strengthen memory skills.”http://www.peps.org/
