Short Term Music Lessons improve Listening and Learning

Great article about the positive effects of Learning Music on Active Listening from the Bangor New Age Examiner.  “According to the research results reported on Science Daily, children who participate in music lessons for as few as 1 to 5 years show improved neural processing of sounds as they near adulthood. This may translate to enhanced listening and learning for a lifetime.” This links back to my Blog Post from a few weeks ago on “Activate Your Listening”
