Piano Lessons Raises Conceptual Scores
University of California, Irvine researchers found that after six months of piano lessons, preschoolers performed 34% higher on spatial-temporal testing than those who received no training and those who received computer training.
Second-Graders Do Sixth-Grade Math
Second-grade students who were given four months of piano keyboard training, as well as time using math puzzle software, scored 27% higher on proportional math and fractions tests than children who received no special instruction. They were also able to solve proportional math problems at a sixth-grade level.
Music Students Score Higher on SATs
College-bound seniors who'd had school music experience scored 52 points higher on the verbal portion of their SATs and 37 points higher in math (89 points combined) than those without arts instruction.
Musical Seniors Healthier
In Florida, researchers studied seniors who had joined keyboard classes at a local music store. For comparison, they also monitored a control group of seniors who didn't participate in music-making activities. The senior students drastically lowered their anxiety and experienced far less loneliness and depression -- conditions that have an immensely detrimental impact on the overall health of seniors. Dr. Frederick Tims of Michigan State University said, "We feel strongly that abundant health benefits can be achieved by older people learning to play music in a supportive, socially enjoyable setting."
