- Makes You Smarter. Scientific research has proven that musical training builds intellectual skills, raises IQs, increases spatial-temporal intelligence, improves memory, and develops creativity.
- Relieves Stress. Music helps calm the mind. It's been shown that music students experience less test- and performance-anxiety than students who don't study music. And according to studies, college-age musicians are emotionally healthier than non-musicians.
- Is Fun & Social. Playing music in a group teaches teamwork, ways of working together, and the joy and rewards of group accomplishment. Band and orchestra members share efforts and experiences, and are often friends for life.
