Individuals who took music lessons as children show stronger neural processing of sound: young adults and even older adults who have not played an instrument for up to 50 years show enhanced neural processing compared to their peers.
Music engages both sides of the brain and your child must concentrate on doing several things simultaneously: reading the music; creating the right sounds with their instrument; listening to the sounds created; following the music; keeping tempo; listening to other musicians; and paying attention to the conductor’s instructions.
Parents and teachers in Western states report that schools trail their counterparts in other regions on a number of measures; they feel more strongly than those in other regions that music should be a core subject. Parents and teachers in the West are the least satisfied about the status of their music programs.
