Do you know that playing a musical instrument is the only thing we do that exercises the entire brain at once? When a child learns to play a musical instrument, the entire brain exercises. Music involves the left, right, front and back portions of the brain making music the most powerful brain-building activity. 

Children involved in music are better at reading, writing, math, language arts, spelling, vocabulary, and memorization because music builds the three areas of the brain necessary for learning: auditory cortex, visual/spatial cortex and motor cortex.
