Simply listening to music offers significant educational benefits, but music performance boosts scores even higher. A child’s voice IS an instrument! Formal, classical, vocal instruction paired with music theory instruction (learning to read music) offers the same advantages as playing a physical instrument.
MSC offers all of this and more! Our members and alumni are “proof positive” of the positive impact of music!
- Excerpt from http://www.onlinecollege.org/Music-Makes-You-Smarter: “Studies show that music has a strong effect on your mood levels and emotions, and also on how you think and your general intelligence. The music you listen to can have a profound effect on your test scores and your ability to quickly process information.”
