Confirming the Benefits of Early Music Lessons

This article sheds light on truths Early Childhood Music teachers have long known. Music study in childhood is a decidedly good thing!

I especially love this quote that states that the benefits are not so much in relation to the so-called ‘Mozart Effect,’ but relate more to the process involved in the study of music.

“Instead, these are studies of the effects of active engagement and discipline. This kind of musical training improves the brain’s ability to discern the components of sound — the pitch, the timing and the timbre.”

The bulk of my professional work is to create an environment that promotes active engagement and discipline. This is exciting to read!
