A recent study, published in the journal “Psychology of Music,” shows that music lessons can significantly improve children’s cognitive performance and reading skills. The study was lead by researchers at Long Island University and shows that children who participate in music education involving rhythmic, tonal and practical skills exhibit superior reading skills to their non-musical peers. *
Conducted during a three-year span, the study followed two groups of second-grade students, and concluded that the group who received musical instruction scored considerably higher in verbal and vocabulary proficiency.
