Did you know that education
in music and the arts enhances
higher brain function? Research
shows that the younger the child
the better to introduce them to
music and the arts, while their
neural pathways are very flexible
and still developing. Creating,
moving, and listening to music
exercises these pathways and
makes them stronger. A good ear
in music creates a better speller
and listener. A good feel for
rhythm and melody increases math
skills and spatial reasoning. Arts
education expands childrens'
capacity to learn, to reason
and to create.
Most importantly, it does not have anything to do with talent and any child can benefit.
