Hey, parents: The benefits of music education

From PBS:

Research has found that learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas. “A music-rich experience for children of singing, listening and moving is really bringing a very serious benefit to children as they progress into more formal learning,” says Mary Luehrisen, executive director of the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation, a not-for-profit association that promotes the benefits of making music.

Learning music at any age increases your IQ and concentration, boosts your brain power, and improves your spatial skills. Studies have shown it makes it easier to learn other subjects, like languages and math, while also studying music.

So come take piano lessons today!
