Music education is one of the best ways to stimulate brain development, teach children to socialize, learn discipline, and to have fun making music! Take a look at this article from the New York Times.
Is Music the Key to Success?
“Multiple studies link music study to academic achievement. But what is it about serious music training that seems to correlate with outsize success in other fields?

And their experiences suggest that music training sharpens other qualities: Collaboration. The ability to listen. A way of thinking that weaves together disparate ideas. The power to focus on the present and the future simultaneously.”
What are your thoughts? Do you know any successful people whose early life included musical training?
