Making Music Enables the Brain
Neuroscientists have found that keeping a steady beat and making music enable a brain that is more capable of acquiring language, reading, doing math, planning, creating, focusing, and more. Children who cannot keep a steady beat almost always struggle with reading (Dr. Nina Kraus).

Accidental Discovery

A 12-year old using a software program designed to improve singing (Singing Coach) jumped up dramatically in reading. Subsequent research by the University of South Florida found that students singing with the software improved 1 year (on average) over 9 weeks.
