The Developmental Benefits of Musical Learning

For more than 30 years, we have believed music is the best conductor for learning. Today music and the mind research is known as the "most rapidly developing field of human study," according to recent reports from the Royal Institute of Great Britain, home to 14 Nobel Prize scientists.

Here's why: Children exposed to the arts for three hours on three days a week through one full year are:

  • 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement
  • 3 times more likely to be elected to class office within their schools
  • 4 times more likely to participate in a math and science fair
  • 3 times more likely to win an award for school attendance
  • 4 times more likely to win an award for writing an essay or a poem

Music is a uniquely powerful means of involving and integrating the activities of both the right and left halves of the brain, combining the rational and the aesthetic. There is a proven correlation between musical study and the following:

  • Muscular Development:   It improves a child’s small motor skills, hand-eye coordination and over-all physical coordination.
  • Increased Listening Ability:  This helps to increase the attention span, concentration, and long and short term memory.
  • Increased Primary Mental Abilities: (verbal, perceptual, number, and spatial) This sharpens a child’s communication, critical thinking and problem solving skills. He or she learns to understand, interpret and use symbols in new contexts.
  • Creative Potential: This promotes awareness of student’s capabilities using imagination and self expression.
  • Development of Personal and Social Skills:  It can help to build confidence, self-discipline and responsibility.  Children learn to work for and cooperate with others.
Through participation in music, children learn the gratification of work shared and challenges met. It helps a child learn how to learn.
