Find Piano Lessons (http://www.findpianolessons.com) encourages parents to take full advantage of the benefits of participating in music. One benefit in particular is the link between music participation and higher performance levels on standardized tests.
In studies conducted by University of Sarasota and East Texas State University, middle and high school students with active instrumental music participation achieved significantly higher scores on standardized tests in comparison to their peers without musical involvement. Conclusions also indicate that achievement in math, science and language arts carries a direct correlation to the number of years of instrumental music instruction.
Julie Bailey of Find Piano Lessons said, "Piano lessons and musical training in general can actually further develop the areas of the brain involved in language and reasoning. There's also a positive link between music and spatial intelligence (accurate perception of the world and the ability to form mental images that reflect reality). This is a vital life skill, crucial in many areas, from advanced mathematics to packing a bag with the appropriate items necessary for a road trip. Creativity, problem solving and questioning the rules to discover new and innovative solutions are also benefits. Music lessons definitely have a positive influence on the way kids think."
