Music Doesn't Improve Cognition

Teacher Insights

Music training may not have a positive impact on improving children's cognitive skills, reading, writing skills, memory and academic achievement, according to researchers at Fujita Health University and London School of Economics. The finding was based on re-analyzing data from 54 previous studies conducted between 1986 and 2019 among 6,984 children. Music training was ineffective in enhancing cognitive or academic skills. Music learning may be good at improving social skills or self-esteem. Certain elements of music instruction, such as arithmetical music notation could be used to facilitate learning in other disciplines.
