Some Benefits of Music Education
Music has an impact on brain development especially in early childhood education.
Playing an instrument strengthens hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, as well as concentration, memory and attitude.
Research shows that music training improves reasoning in preschool children, which is necessary for learning math and science, as well as other subjects.
A recent study showed that a curriculum combining piano lessons, educational math software and fun math problems helped second-graders achieve scores on math problems comparable to those of fourth graders.
Students who make music have been shown to get along better with classmates and have fewer discipline problems.
Young people who are involved in making music in their teenage years score 100 points higher on the SAT than those who don't play music.
Senior citizens who are actively involved in music-making enjoy significant health benefits.
Studies show that older Americans who are actively involved in music-making show improvements in anxiety, loneliness and depression – three factors that are critical in coping with stress, stimulating the immune system and improving health.
