Music Learning Helps Learning Difficulties

The connections between music learning and learning difficulties such as ADHD, as well as the research around these areas is a highly requested topic at BBB. We are always looking for ways to enhance your knowledge of the topics you are most interested in, so we are excited to announce the release of our ‘Music Learning Helps Learning Difficulties’ series.

The ‘Music Learning Helps Learning Difficulties’ series consists of three information documents to provide you with the research behind how music learning helps a particular area of learning. The series includes the following topics:

  • How Music Learning Helps ADHD
  • How Music Learning Helps Autism
  • How Music Learning Helps Dyslexia

Each area of learning contains an Infographic, a Research Summary and a PowerPoint with extensive notes to help you present confidently. Each document presents the research in different and engaging ways for you to use with your different audiences. We’ve added some previews here for you to see.

To introduce this series, we have released a professional reading titled ADHD and Music Learning, where we discuss the study of ADHD and music learning and discuss an interesting paper on the connections between the two. Here is a preview!

Research Summaries

Some school leaders don’t have time for a powerpoint presentation and may need a quick and comprehensive summary of the benefits your music program is offering to students of your school. The research summary is the perfect resource for you. Written by Dr Anita Collins, these research summaries breakdown and explain the neuroscience behind the different benefits of music learning for learning difficulties. You can also include these in newsletters or other communication mediums with your parents.
