Parents, you deserve a round of applause for providing music education for your child.

According to an extensive study by a German Socio-Economic Panel in 2013 “Music improves cognitive and non-cognitive skills more than twice as much as sports, theater or dance.” Furthermore, the study concluded that kids who take music lessons regularly “have better cognitive skills and school grades and are more conscientious, open and ambitious.”

Without going into too much detail, below are thirteen benefits of learning music concluded from the study:

  1. Improved reading and verbal skills.

  2. Improved mathematical and spatial-temporal reasoning.

  3. Improved school grades.

  4. Increased IQ.
