This is actually kind of cool - mouse over the area of the brain and the page shows you what that area does - what brain areas deal with it - how music is processed by it and how music can help.  Nice introduction!

Andy Nanton's insight:

This source shows how the brain when stimulated by music shows increased information processing and motor coordination, and helps to create stronger neural connections in the brain which contribute to improved structure and function through a process called neuroplasticity.

Strong stuff from the Canadian Royal Conservatory of Music.  Having compiled a number of studies over the last decade they're making the statement that the neuroscience is now proving that music has tangible benefits.  Parent's might want to consider the opening paragraph:

 

"... neuroscience research has been proving that music education fast-tracks speech and reading skills, trains children to focus their attention for sustained periods, and helps them to develop emotional intelligence, among many other lifelong benefits."
