How Beneficial is Early Childhood Music Training?
A little music training in childhood goes a long way in improving how the brain functions in adulthood, according to a new study.
Compared to people with no musical training, adults with one to five years of musical training as children had enhanced brain responses to complex sounds, making them more effective at pulling out the fundamental frequency of the sound signal, researchers at Northwestern University report. “Musical training as children makes better listeners later in life,” said Dr. Nina Kraus, a professor of neurobiology, physiology and communication sciences at Northwestern...the study suggests that short-term music lessons may enhance lifelong listening and learning.
