  • It has been widely publicised that the National Institute of Health (NIH) in the U.S. has just awarded the Sound Health Initiative $20 million over the next 5 years to look into the health and learning benefits of music and music learning. Read more about this in October’s member package! Firstly, this is an enormous […]

  • How efficiently is your brain working today? 🧠🎶🥁🎷🎹🎺🎸🎻😃 Music learning trains the brain to use less brain resources when compared with non musically trained people (and in this case those who are also bilingual). The cognitive function featured in this article is working memory, which is the part of our brain that is important for […]

  • Music and speech – two peas in a baby’s brain pod 🧠🎶👶🏼 In this study they found that 9 month old babies who had one month of exposure to directed music listening improved not only their auditory processing of music but also their language. So little time, so much benefit! 🧠🎶🗣 Become a BBB Member […]

  • What is the connection between rhythm and reading?👏📖 They use overlapping neural mechanisms and this brand new study with beginner readers (aged 5-7) found a whole swag of connections, concluding that “rhythm skills and literacy call on overlapping neural mechanisms, supporting the idea that rhythm training may boost literacy in part by engaging sensory‐motor systems”. […]

  • 10 minutes of music learning a week for 10 weeks can improve reading skills for poor readers. This amazing study is by the great Prof Susan Hallam and she tested a music intervention to assist poor readers. After a rhythmic intervention involving clapping, stamping, and chanting to music while following notation on a chart, the […]

  • Music learning in early childhood increases pre-reading skills and vocabulary 🧠🎶📖 The results of this study of 90 3-6 years olds found that early childhood music training can lead to associated improvements in both musical skills and language skills, thus strengthening the evidence for a developmental link between these two abilities. The study also found […]

  • This study explored if humans and monkeys process music, specifically pitch processing, the same way. Why would they want to research this? The reason is music, as we know it, is a unique creation by humans. Does that mean that the human brain has different functions and structures that are specific to music? And if so, […]

  • This study is important because it is trying to get to the bottom of the neural development of the auditory and motor networks. It is, however, building on the research from musically trained children and reading. The study looked to test children before they had music learning or learned how to read. The researchers took […]

  • This article is packed with fantastic research from the MARCS Institute in Sydney, Australia. It is vital to study the first developmental steps in all areas of life, but possibly it is most important with complex language, the skill that is specific to humans and is the basis of connecting, communicating and understanding each other.
