The value of music education is unquestionable
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
TakeLessons, the fastest-growing nationwide music and voice lessons provider, has created an infographic illustrating the ways in which music lessons make you smarter. Scientific studies have proven time and time again that music education helps to develop smarter, more successful students who grow into more productive adults. In fact, thought leaders from Leonardo Da Vinci and Benjamin Franklin to Condoleezza Rice and Bill Clinton all share the common bond of a solid music education foundation.
Recent findings support past research, which states that music lessons contribute to improved math and reading skills as well as higher test scores. In fact, students who were tested before and after engaging in music training increased their IQ score by an average of 6.3 points after lessons had taken place.
“The value of music education is unquestionable,” says Steven Cox, Founder and CEO of TakeLessons. “However, it’s important that we look even deeper into the ways that lessons impact both short- and long-term learning in students, as well as adults. Our research has proven that music education is one of the most valuable tools we can give our children in preparing them for success in school and beyond.”
