Research Shows Music Can Help Math Skills!

By Suzanne Quigley, PhD | Executive Director

We have observed that early music exposure seems to support the development of listening skills for children with hearing loss who are learing to develop listening and spoken langauge. There is a growing body of research that links music to math skill development. A recent study in the renowned journal Nature showed that when groups young learners were given music instruction that focused on sequential skill development and rhythm and pitch musical games, they scored significantly better in math than students in groups that received traditional music instruction. Your support of this project will help us further our music instruction and enjoyment in support of children and families.
