Piano Lessons Are Good For You, Part 4

In earlier posts, I mentioned a new study supporting the idea that music lessons provide "tremendous benefits."


Journalist Tom Barnes explains:

“Prior research proves that learning music can help children develop spatiotemporal faculties, which then aid their ability to solve complex math. It can also help children improve their reading comprehension and verbal abilities, especially for those who speak English as a second language.


“In these ways music can be a powerful tool in helping to close the achievement gaps that have plagued American schools for so long. It's even been shown that children who receive musical training in school also tend to be more civically engaged and maintain higher grade-point averages than children who don't. In short, musical education can address many of the systemic problems in American education.”

If music instruction is meager or unavailable in your child’s school, Listening House Piano Studios can help. Give us a call.
