Why can playing and learning music be so beneficial to an individual’s development?

  • Aid with disability learning in a fun and non-intimidating way: Learning music is one of the most fun and effective ways to teach children with a learning disability a new skill that will provide them with joy and a sense of mastery throughout their lives. Music-making can also help boost confidence, communication, self-expression, and self-esteem.

  • Reduce symptoms anxiety and stress: Research shows that playing and listening to music can reduce the symptoms of stress and anxiety. A 2019 systematic review published in the journal Health Psychology Review found that music interventions had an overall significant effect on stress reduction for both physiological and psychological outcomes, including reduced heart-rate, lower blood pressure and reduced cortisol (stress hormone) levels.

  • Musical training improves the brain's executive functioning. Executive function involves important tasks such as processing and retaining information, controlling behavior, making decisions, and problem solving.
