  • Some people have favourite fiction writers. We (The BBB Team) have favourite science writers. This abstract alone by Prof. Nina Kraus and Dr. Travis White-Schwoch has some great gems in it. Let’s start with this one: “The active, repeated engagement with sound demanded by music making augments the neural processing of speech, eventually cascading to […]

  • Have you ever wondered what the connection between music and dyslexia might be? Researchers in Italy have provided a good description of the connection. “Since music and language share common mechanisms and the core deficit underlying dyslexia has been identified in difficulties in dynamic and rapidly changing auditory information processing, it has been argued that […]

  • An extensive study has been released which found that students who studied music in primary school and into high school were almost one year ahead of their non-musically trained peers in their Maths, Science and English performance. This study is receiving a lot of attention on social media because it has such a large sample […]

  • Prof Glen Schellenberg is a giant in the field of music training and brain development. His paper of Music Learning and IQ was an incredibly important study when the field was in its infancy.

  • “Research suggests music helps parents bond with babies who have had a harrowing start to life, and may benefit the babies’ health and brain development.” This research is incredibly valuable to help us understand why and how singing is important in the first weeks and months of life, whether it be a smooth or harrowing […]

  • 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, […]

  • Quite a number of research studies have been released recently about listening to music and productivity. A lot of the headlines point to the connection between listening to music and lessening of productivity. The important detail to notice is which particular type of activity the participants were less productive in. We translate cutting edge research […]

  • Music has been used as an intervention around the world to help students, and inevitably whole communities, who are living in challenging circumstances. These circumstances have a profound effect on children’s brain development and their education, and music programs have had seemingly miraculous impacts on both the social and educational issues associated with disadvantage. Cutting […]

  • I am sure there is a joke in there, but as you think about what it is, you should have a look at this new study. It looked into the differences between auditory processing skills, like auditory memory, and speech in noise. Get all cutting-edge research you need to support your music program! Subscribe to […]
