Next month, millions of high school students will get some well-deserved time off from school. However, three months without school doesn’t have to mean dead-end jobs and days lolling in front of the TV. Instead, some very compelling 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. Ft. Lauderdale guitar teacher Dyce Kimura is excited about these findings, and as a result, is offering a steep discount for new all 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

One study, called the National Education Longitudinal Study illustrated that music participants received more academic honors and awards than non-music students. Furthermore, the percentage of music participants receiving college degrees was significantly higher than the percentage of non-participants receiving those grades, as discovered in the 1990 Study, conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics, in Washington DC.

A second study backed up these findings. The biologist and physician Dr. Lewis Thomas reviewed the undergraduate majors of medical school applicants, finding that 66% of music majors who applied to medical school were admitted, the highest percentage of any group. (As a comparison, just 44% of biochemistry majors were accepted to medical school.) This information was reported in the "The Case for Music in the Schools," in the journal Phi Delta Kappan, February 1994.

Studying music has already been proven to help students do better with math, and pattern recognition. Another reason that music helps students do better in school might not be so obvious: it helps them stay out of trouble. According to a 1992 National Data Resource Center investigation cross the entire student body, 12.14% of students can be classified as "disruptive" (based on cases of skipping classes, times in trouble, in-school suspensions, arrests, dropouts, etc.) In contrast, however, only 8.08 percent of students involved in music classes meet the same criteria as "disruptive."
