Recent Studies: Summer Guitar Lessons Help High School Student in School and Beyond

Share Article

This month, millions of Florida high school students will get to enjoy summer break. Three months without school, however, doesn’t have to mean only part-time jobs and days at the beach. There is exciting new (and old) research that shows high school students can take up one simple activity that will help them as students—and as people: studying music. Ft. Lauderdale guitar teacher Dyce Kimura is excited about this research, and is offering a major discount on his guitar lessons to all current high school students.

From your first lesson, I will have you playing. And, I will inspire you to keep on playing. The guitar is not an easy instrument to play; but if you aspire to be an accomplished player; I can get you there.

Studying music has been shown to help students with patterns, advanced thinking, and mathematics. The journal Neurological Research studied 200+ 2nd-graders using music lesson and newly-designed math software to show improved math skills. This group scored 27% higher on math exams than kids who used only the math software.

Larger studies only back these findings. Analyzing US Department of Education data on 25,000+ secondary school students, researchers found that students who stayed regularly involved with music demonstrated “significantly higher levels of mathematics proficiency by grade 12.” Impressively, this trend was evident independent of household income levels. In other words, music lessons have the potential to help even the poorest students improve their chances at school, and in securing employment.

For high school students with aspirations of college, these studies are particularly relevant. Students who studied music did significantly higher on the SAT: students taking music lessons scored 57 points higher on the verbal and 41 points higher on the math portion of the SAT—according to the College Entrance Examination Board.

All of these studies support one common theme: the earlier, the better, when it comes to music education. A NYC DOE study showed that “students who participated in arts programs in selected elementary and middle schools in New York City showed significant increases in self-esteem and thinking skills.” Increased confidence correlates to better learners.
