I can remember as a youngster, my dear cousin who was required to learn music.

She had the violin and the piano and had to parctice them everyday.

I remember how she did hate to be forced to her lesson, instead of doing what she pleased.

I also remember so strongly desiring to be able to have an instrument to play.

It is said that when children are encouraged to play an instrument it helps in other areas of life as well….

Music and Learning
From Kimberly L. Keith,
former About.com Guide

Scientific research on the neurological and developmental effects of music has fascinated educators and parents with the possibility of children’s learning enhancement. Compared to the long history of research on language, our scientific understanding of music is new. Fortunately for parents, enriching our children’s lives with music can be easily and pleasantly accomplished. From soft music in the nursery to musical toys and dance lessons, encouraging music involvement in a fun way strengthens children’s educational, physical, and emotional development.

Does Music Make My Child Smarter?
Yes, of course it does. When learning a song, a musical instrument, or a dance step, your child experiences the unique integration of body and mind that music provides. Sensory integration is a crucial factor in children’s learning readiness for school subjects such as reading, writing, and math. Music improves spatial-temporal reasoning (See the M.I.N.D. Institute research), a neurological process needed to understand mathematics. The best way to enhance your child’s learning with music is to encourage listening to and learning music throughout the child’s developmental years. Do it in a variety of ways that are enjoyable and fun, then let your child’s own interest and aptitudes guide your choices of lessons and activities.
