Learning a Musical Instrument as a Child
Research has shown that learning to play an instrument does amazing stuff for developing brains: it improves both IQ and verbal memory. Mathematical ability in particular is impacted. How so? Playing music creates novel connections between different parts of the brain and engages multiple parts of our grey matter at the same time, thus making our brains more powerful.
The piano is actually one of the easiest for beginners: simply press a key and a clear sound is produced. Learning to play the keyboard imparts patience, focus, and concentration, as even simple music requires a child to focus. It improves motor skills and hand-eye coordination. And playing an instrument reduces stress and provides an avenue towards positive self-esteem. After all, who doesn’t feel good when they discover they can create music with their own hands?
