Recent Studies: Music Instruction Makes High School Kids Smarter, Better Students

Share Article

Later next month, millions of Florida high school students will get some time off for summer break. However, three months without school doesn’t have to mean dead-end jobs and days in front of the TV. Some very exciting new research shows that high school students can take up one simple activity this summer that will actually help make them smarter—and do better in school: studying music. The Ft. Lauderdale guitar teacher Dyce Kimura is excited about this research, and as a result, is offering a sizeable discount on guitar lessons to all high school students.

Dyce is unique among guitar teachers. He is able to inspire and to motivate you to the level of guitar proficiency that you want.

In one study reported on in the medical journal Neuroscience Letters, musicians and non-musicians of the same age and sex were required to perform complex sequences of finger movements, while their brains were scanned using magnetic resource imaging (which detects the activity-levels of brain cells). The non-musicians could make the movements ok—but the musicians’ brains expended less energy. In other words, the brains of musicians are more efficient at making skilled movements.

The positive effects on the brain are seen outside the laboratory, as well. According to one renowned brain doctor, “The musician is constantly adjusting decisions on tempo, tone, style, rhythm, phrasing, and feeling—training the brain to become incredibly good at organizing and conducting numerous activities at once. Dedicated practice of this orchestration can have a great payoff for lifelong attentional skills, intelligence, and an ability for self-knowledge and expression.” Needless to say, these skills will help any student in high school and college, and afterwards, in the workforce.

And it’s not just that music lessons help boost intelligence—they are actually better than other methods. One research team reported that “music training is far superior to computer instruction in dramatically enhancing children's abstract reasoning skills, the skills necessary for learning math and science.” As we know, America is continually falling behind other countries in math and sciences—perhaps, in part, is because we have been neglecting our music studies, as well.

Dyce’s Weston guitar lessons for high school students are available to sale directly to students, or can be purchased as a gift by their loved ones. Absolute beginners are encouraged: Dyce’s impactful, easy-to-understand teaching style focuses on getting students to play great-sounding grooves from lesson #1.
