  • Do men and women hear differently? Maybe. This report speaks on the lack of auditory processing differences at birth and in young children, but how differences may appear in adolescents as puberty changes our brains and bodies. This research has interesting implications – it may contribute to our understanding of why males seem more vulnerable […]

  • We are just going to leave this here … Arthur (Brooks, leading US economists and social scientist) was once asked whether he’d learned anything as a serious musician that applied to his current work (as a faculty member of the Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School and author of 2 New York Bestseller books on […]

  • This article is about the stuff of music – sound. Music learning assists in refining sound processing and is particularly important in the processing and engaging with language for children between 8-16 years of age. “Children with hearing problems tend to do less well than their peers in terms of language development and academic performance. […]

  • We are sharing this again as we have recently had people asking for an updated post focusing on more scientific aspects of the study. Connectivity is an interesting thing. In society, we continually look for connectivity, whether it be with people, places or ideas. Sometimes, that connectivity is very strong, other times it is very […]

  • Do you have similar musical tastes to your friends? How about your work colleagues? Do you think musical tastes tell us anything else about a person? This study thinks it might when it compared musical taste with political leaning. The big five personality domains they are referring to are: Openness to experience (inventive/curious vs. consistent/cautious) […]

  • “Adults who engage in synchronous movement to music later report liking each other better, remembering more about each other, trusting each other more, and are more likely to cooperate with each other compared to adults who engage in asynchronous movements.” This could be why music festivals seem to be going from strength to strength, we […]

  • Here is one of those research sentences that are so useful when we are explaining how music learning impacts on every child’s development. “The results suggest that systematic extracurricular programs, particularly music-based training, may accelerate the development of inhibitory control and related brain networks earlier in childhood.” This research paper is reporting on the progress […]

  • Communication is a way of creating connection, but it seems that possibly for autistic children, connection is a way of improving communication. In this study at the University of Montreal, 51 children with ASD ages 6 to 12 were randomly assigned to participate in a clinical trial involving three months of either a music-based, or […]
