Did you know?

Studies show that musical training can have a profound and lasting impact on the brain, creating additional neural connections in childhood that can last a lifetime and help compensate for cognitive declines later in life. Those many hours spent learning and practicing specific types of motor control and coordination (each finger on each hand doing something different, and for wind and brass instruments, also using your mouth and breathing), along with the music­-reading and listening skills that go into playing an instrument in youth, are all factors contributing to the brain boost that shows up later in life.
