Music education is much more than just learning the skill to play an instrument. Music education touches many areas in your life and your development.

In this video I stand on my soap box and talk about how music education affects the following:

- Playing a musical instrument creates complex connections in your brain which have the nice side effect that your IQ increase (the Mozart effect)
- Motorial skills
- Cultural (arts) and historical knowledge and interest
- Reading
- Abstract thinking
- Social skills
- Timing
- Memory training
- Creativity
- Self esteem and cooping system
- Connection between body and mind
- Bilateral learning, learning with both halves of your brain
- Sensitivity

Is this video useful to you? Please let me know in the comments!

Love,

Zlata

"Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosphy. Music is the electrical soil
in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents."
~ Ludwig van Beethoven ~
