Studies show that children who play an instrument develop good habits, improve their social skills, and become better readers! (University of Arizona) Recent studies have scientifically proven that young minds can develop more intelligence through exposure to music! (University of California, Irvine) We have always known that music is fun and good for us, but now we have science agreeing!
