Whether dancing around the living room on a rainy day or singing along to the radio, school-age kids love listening to — and participating in — music.And there are loads of good reasons to encourage this enthusiasm. Research shows that kids who are actively involved in music (who play it or sing it regularly):

  • do better in reading
  • learn coordination, goal-setting, concentration, and cooperation
  • are more likely to do better in math and science because music helps build reasoning skills and cognitive development, which are important to both
  • get along better with their peers and have higher self-esteem
