Music and the Brain
It has been proven that playing music in particular strengthens the motor, auditory and visual areas of the brain, as well as the connections between the right and left hemispheres. Also, “studies have shown that assiduous instrument training from an early age can help the brain to process sounds better, making it easier to stay focused when absorbing other subjects.” (Scientific American, “Hearing the Music, Honing the Mind”)
In class we watched a Ted Ed video regarding the scientific discoveries of how music impacts the brain. Take a moment to watch this incredible TED video below.
