Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, October 4, 2013 5:03 PM

Lots of infographics over on Pinterest but I like this - funding for music education isn't going to come from top down - it's going to come from individual parents recognizing the benefits and then finding a teacher themselves.  The more we can promulgate the benefits a musical education has for a kid - the faster this change will take place...

I caught this Spotify study as well and chose not to re-publish it - it just reeked of nonsense.  I did have a look for Emma Gray and couldn't find a digital footprint for her either.  Prof. Honing is absolutely right to raise here.

 

I love that all this research is bubbling up but I'm always interested in sample size and who pays the bills - so should the journalists who amplify the signal.

Another study closing in on the relationship between music and language - basically - people who can keep a beat may be able to process language more effectively.  The thinking goes that if you have trained yourself to keep time by establishing closer connections between the auditory and motor cortexes - that understanding of rhythm benefits you when you're looking to understand the spoken word - specifically when you're learning how to read.   

The researcher reckons that increased musical training is going to benefit the acquisition of language skills.  get your kids in music class! The sample size was 124 high school students.
