A recent report by the National Association of Sciences details why music education is so important for adolescents. I work with, and have seen the stunning results of singing on geriatric patients, and there are numerous studies that show the benefits of singing and music on the brain for all ages.
Thank you to the Jolee-Jaffe Music Foundation of Arizona for posting this report by the National Association of Sciences in their Newsletter. In part, the report states:
"The music training group also exhibited earlier emergence of the adult cortical response, suggesting that in-school music accelerates neurodevelopment. These changes seem to benefit literacy skills: both groups improved in phonological awareness relative to the general population, but the music training group improved more compared with the active controls."
