Why Your Children Should Learn a Musical Instrument

According to a study from Northwestern University published by TIME, kids need to be engaged in learning about music and directly participate in playing instruments instead of simply listening to music. The study indicates that even for highly engaged studies, small periods of direct engagement in playing a musical instrument enhance class participation and strengthen the brain’s functions. Music training is extremely beneficial for children of all ages, according to the director of Northwestern University’s Auditory Neuroscience Laboratory Nina Kraus.
