"While it’s common for iPad users to stream music to their devices with apps such as Spotify or Slacker radio, or listen to their own music libraries through Apple’s native Music app, the iPad is also an excellent way to explore new musical genres or learn about Classical, Jazz, or even Opera at any age."
Arts Education in the Arab World Deserves More Respect — And Resources Brookings Institution The OECD study says music education strengthens IQ and academic performance, and may facilitate foreign-language training.
Music education also has a clear causal impact on verbal skills, probably via its facilitation of auditory skills: music training improves phonological skills, the ability to hear speech in a noisy environment, and there is ...
We have known for over a decade that this day would come. America has shorted creativity and now our innovation and competitiveness have fallen off the pace. Failing to invest in our national growth engine is like keeping Junior out of school for the Second and Third grade and expecting him to do well in the Fourth.

At home? From parents who are not musicians or artists? Whatever we are doing at home to bridge the creativity gap, according to these reports, is really not working out.

Earlier this year Secretary of Education Arne Duncan voiced his support for dance, music, theater, and visual arts programs, calling them "essential to preparing our nation's young people for a global economy fueled by innovation and creativity." A new study from the University of Illinois at Chicago points to an equally important reason we need to make sure every school has a robust arts program: People who engage in the arts or watch others do so are more likely to be civically engaged, socially tolerant, and altruistic.
Exposure to music can makes kids more empathetic, a recent study has found. The University of Cambridge research, though preliminary, may affect how school systems, policymakers and educators view music and its relationship to a child's development.
"Empathy is considered to be a precursor of pro-social behavior, a crucial ingredient in our daily social lives," said Rabinowitch. "Empathy keeps us 'together,' connected, and aware for each other."
