Music Contributes to Academic Success

Researchers at the Boston Children’s Hospital worked with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and found early musical training enhances the areas of the brain responsible for executive functioning. 

  • Children with at least two years of private lessons showed enhanced cognitive control, with aids in information retention and behavior regulation. 

Musical training may actually help to set up children for a better academic future,” said Senior Investigator Nadine Gaab, PhD, of the Laboratories of Cognitive Neuroscience. (June 2014)

Practicing a Musical Instrument Improves Auditory Discrimination and Fine Motor Skills

A Harvard-based study found that children who receive instrumental music training for three years or more outperform their control counterparts in areas such as fine motor skills and superior discrimination in melodic/tonal and rhythmic discrimination abilities. (Schlaug, G, Norton, A, Overy, K, Winner, E. 2005 Annals NY Acad of Sciences 1060).

Music and Character Development

In addition to cognitive skills, study in the arts develops character traits such as discipline, teamwork, perseverance, patience, self-control, problem solving, and empathy.  

Musical Training Correlations to Verbal Competency

A Stanford University study showed that mastering a musical instrument improves brain processing in areas associated with language development, and may have implications for improving language/reading skills (Gabrieli, John,, Nov. 2005). 

This research has been compiled by Community School of the Arts (CSA) at Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL.
