‘The way you hear sound today is dictated by the experiences with sound you’ve had up until today…’

‘…Thus childhood music instruction has strong linguistic benefits and improves performance on everyday listening tasks…’ 

‘Musically trained kids do better in school, with stronger reading skills, increased math abilities, and higher general intelligence scores. Music even seems to improve social development, as people believe music helps them be better team players and have higher self-esteem…’
