According to Dr. Laurel Trainor, Prof. of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Behavior at McMaster University, (2006) young Children who take music lessons show different brain development and improved memory over the course of a year, compared to children who do not receive musical training. Musically trained children performed better in a memory test that is correlated with general intelligence skills such as literacy, verbal memory, visiospatial processing, mathematics, and IQ.
It’s interesting to note that memory improvement was apparent after just one year of taking music lessons. This is just one of the many benefits of making music.
