Playing Music Helps Develop Children’s Brains

Again and again music proves to be beneficial for children. This time a study from the College of Medicine of the University of Vermont learned that music can teach children skills which can improve their brain’s conditions significantly. They used 230 brain images from children 6 to 18 years old. Based off their findings, children who learn to play an instrument have their brain develop differently than those who do not. The area of the brain cortex responsible for control, memory, and organization are thicker, which is a good thing. Thickness is a factor in a person’s aggressiveness, depression, attention span, and other behavioral issues. Basically, the thicker, the better.

Bottom line, introducing music into a young child’s life has once again proven to be beneficial. Take it from Making Music, and get your child playing an instrument today!
