Can music help students learn?

Report as

Music education has been proven time after time in study after study to aid with spatial relations, left-right hemisphere development and synchronization, logic, mental discipline, and a host of other cognitive skills. Look at countries in which it is a part of their core curriculum. They ALL out-perform the U.S. Here's a link for more info. on the many benefits of music education: http://www.pbs.org/parents/education/music-arts/the-benefits-of-music-education/

God Bless you ! It was so brilliant that you mentioned specific areas of positive results of music education. The Challenge now is What type of music will deliver these type of right results? Certainly, not every type of music will. Take care.

yes because it stimulates the brain to focus on the work your doing and the process of taking in the music allows you to focus mor strongly on whatever your doing.

Definitely! Music notes are like numbers. You count as you are playing. You have whole, half, & quarter notes so you are using fractions. I'm sure there are even more correlations with mathematics, but that us what I remember from a basic music class in junior high.

Yes! Music is art. It's a way to meet new people, learn how to read music, express yourself, and be yourself. Music is a way of life. I'm in band I know what I'm talking about.

Yes music is important part of learning. But sound becomes a lesson when you pay attention to what you hear, not only enjoy it. As well as music trains your memory.
