About Music Over Miles
Research shows that robust music programs help students with better academic achievement, yet music programs are being cut across the country.
Music programs and music education have many benefits for children and youth. Music facilitates cognitive skills, including reading, abstract spatial abilities, and creativity. Research has demonstrated that practicing music during one’s youth, even if it is only for a few years, helps improve the adult brain. Learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills useful in every part of the curriculum. Music students consistently out-perform non-music on achievement tests in reading and math. In fact, a research team exploring the link between music and intelligence reported music training is far superior to computer instruction in dramatically enhancing abstract reasoning skills necessary for learning math and science.
