There is a wealth of evidence that indicates that music lessons offer children intellectual benefits. This can put them ahead of others who do not participate in music education. There are indications of higher grades and IQ scores, lower incidence of misbehavior, and higher level reading skills.
The current television programming shows a resurgence in recent years of a renewed interest in the benefits of music training. Shows like American Idol, The Voice, are just a few. But watching television and just listening to music aren't enough to gain the benefits of music. You have to be involved in the education process to see the results.
Success in school is one of the easiest-measured gains of music participation. Children participating in piano keyboard and math software demonstrated an improvement in math skills. Other studies show music participants receiving more A's than B's than non-music students. All in all music education helps create a well-rounded student who becomes a well-rounded adult. It can also serve as an entryway to new careers, relationships, or business ventures.
