Music for academic success of kids

piano-606080_1280We all knew music was good for us, now here’s proof. Music training, even if started as late as high school, may help improve a teenager’s brain responses to sound and sharpen hearing and language skills, suggests a new Northwestern University study. The research, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), indicates that music instruction helps enhance skills that are critical for academic success. Which means, that all those parents wanting their kids to excel in their studies, should enroll them in music classes.

What’s more, for children born in poverty, music classes can actually bring them up. The stable processing of sound details, important for language skills, is known to be diminished in children raised in poverty, raising the possibility that music education may offset this negative influence on sound processing. A good way to start education for the underprivileged.
