Brain development and music education

Research continues to demonstrate that exposure to music at an early age aids brain development.

This article, which Mrs. Wilkison brought to my attention, asserts that a child’s auditory systems develop faster with exposure to music.  The brain’s auditory system is essential to reading skills, language development and successful communication.

At TPA, every student is required to learn a musical instrument and to experience music performance, as well as music theory.

I ran a series of blog posts on some of the benefits of arts (and particularly music) education.  Access it here.
