Are you aware that music makes you smarter? There is plenty of evidence showing that learning to play a musical instrument or developing an appreciation for music has many positive effects on a person's brain function and their intelligence. Children that take private music lessons achieve and maintain higher grade-point averages, and even senior citizens who play instruments or take them up later in life maintain brain function that is noticeably better than their non-musical peers. Research suggests that being exposed to music can positively impact a child's reading age, IQ, and brain development. Adults also benefit from learning to play an instrument thanks to enhanced alertness and increased activity that has a positive effect on memory as well as enhancing the general experience of daily life.
It has also been shown that playing a musical instrument generates beneficial effects in the anatomy and function of the brain. Growing evidence suggests that musicians' brains are functionally and structurally distinguishable from the brains of non-musicians. Not only that, but do you know that music has a wide array of positive impacts on your health? Studies show that music has a profound effect on your mood levels and emotions, and also on how you think and your general intelligence. The music you listen to can also have a profound effect on your test scores and your ability to quickly process information. And if you’ve ever played an instrument, studies show that you’re already ahead of the curve. Playing an instrument is a great way to test out your creative thinking and push your brain to process information in a new way. The following infographic below takes a look at the notion that whether you’re listening or playing, a little music can go a long way.
