Worldwide Research Discoveries 
  • Music lessons have been shown to improve a child's performance in school.
  • In a recent experiment, after 8 months of lessons, pre-schoolers showed a 46% boost  in their spatial IQ which is crucial for higher brain functions such as mathematics.
  • Students who were exposed to music-based lessons scored a full 100% higher on fraction texts than those who learned in a conventional manner.
  • Research reveals that pre-school years are the optimal "learning time" for developing musical ability.
  • Young children with developed rhythm skills perform better academically.
  • In a ten-year study in the US, which tracked over 25,000 students, a direct correlation between music studies and improved school results has been acknowledged.
  • A two-year study in Switzerland involving 1,200 children in 50 classes, scientifically demonstrated how music improved children's reading and verbal skills through enhanced concentration, memory and self expression.
  • Other findings revealed that the children in the study had better interpersonal relationships, experienced a greater enjoyment of school, were less stressed during testing and were better able to handle performance pressures.
  • A series of studies conducted in Europe in the 1950s concluded that learning and playing music not only improved academic performance but also improved memory, reasoning, working as a team, time management and the ability to think creatively.
  • Music is now being recognised as a form of intelligence, not just a manifestation of it.
