  • Music rewards the brain: Music stimulates the brain regions involved in rewards and emotion. The result? It’s a fun mental exercise that improves your self-esteem.
  • Music improves listening skills: Kids that study music are better at picking up foreign languages and detecting speech in noise – even if they only studied briefly, long ago.
  • Music improves productivity: Studies show that kids involved in music have better reading skills, know their math and tend to be brighter. SAT takers that studied music scored 47 and 43 points higher on their verbal and math tests, respectively.
  • Music makes you nicer: Kids hooked on music are better team players, less aggressive and more cooperative with teachers. There are fewer fights, racism and hurtful sarcasm in schools with good music programs.
  • Music helps you grow up: Learning music enables kids to better express their ideas, accept criticism and improves their critical thinking and problem solving.
