A few years of musical training during childhood can benefit your brain for decades. Neuroscientists have demonstrated that learning to play a musical instrument or sing leads to beneficial changes within a child’s brain that make it more likely they will reach their full cognitive and academic potential.
Music making has been scientifically proven to: exercise the brain, inspire creativity, increase productivity, fight memory loss, reduce stress, lower blood pressure, stave off depression, enhance cognitive development in children, build confidence, and create social connections and bonds. Thank a music teacher and parents that give their child the gift of a lifetime… MUSIC.
The Royal Conservatory of Music has compiled an in depth article of the most recent neuroscience research proving that music education is a powerful tool for attaining children’s full intellectual, social and creative potential. “The Benefits of Music Education: An Overview of Current Neuroscience Research” highlights studies offering compelling insights into the potent, long-term value children gain through music training.
