Students Taking Music Courses Have Higher Scores in School
A new study from the University of British Columbia, Canada, suggests that high school students taking music courses are doing significantly better on mathematics, science, and English exams compared to their peers who don’t take any music courses.
The researchers examined data from more than 112,000 students in public schools in British Columbia who finished school between 2012 and 2015. The sample contained data from those who completed at least one standardized exam for mathematics, science and English, and for whom the researchers had demographic information available.
One of the authors of the study, Martin Guhn, an assistant professor in UBC's school of population and public health “Learning to play a musical instrument and playing in an ensemble is very demanding. A student has to learn to read music notation, develop eye-hand-mind coordination, develop keen listening skills, develop team skills for playing in an ensemble and develop the discipline to practice. All those learning experiences, and more, play a role in enhancing the learner's cognitive capacities, executive functions, motivation to learn in school, and self-efficacy.”
