Music and the Brain: The Benefits of Music

According to a 2016 study, at the University of Southern California’s Brain and Creativity Institute, “music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy.” Furthermore “musical experiences can actually accelerate brain development, particularly in the areas of language acquisition and reading skills”.
