Want to perform better at school and work, strengthen your brain, develop problem-solving and critical-thinking skills and communicate more effectively?
Then it’s time to face the music!
Learning and playing a musical instrument can pay long-term dividends. And whether it’s you, your child or even Grandma, you’re never too old to start.
Recent studies indicate that musical training provides plentiful perks, including:
- Enhanced neural processing of sound and speech for adolescents taking music classes in high school.
- Increased blood flow to language centers of the brain; just 30 minutes of training can positively affect brain patterns.
- Enhanced verbal memory, reading ability, second-language pronunciation accuracy and executive functions.
- Improved brain anatomy, particularly when training starts prior to age 7.
