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.
