Music Lessons as Child May Keep Aging Minds Sharp

In This Article:

Learning to play a musical instrument as a child may help keep the mind sharp for years after the last note is played.

A new study suggests childhood music lessons may improve brain function and combat the effects of aging on the brain.

Researchers found older adults who took music lessons as a child performed better on memory and brain function tests than those who never learned how to read music or play an instrument.
