This week’s MomTastic Find is a personal favorite and (full disclosure) client of ours. You Are Musical just launched a very exciting production..its new website. The company specializes in early childhood music education (with options for adults too), with programs in schools, homes, the community, and more. Along the production route, I learned some fascinating stats about kids and music that I wanted to share here at The Lounge.
- Did you know…the piano was invented in 1700 in Florence, Italy. That, along with the fact that 3 million guitars were sold in the U.S. last year, makes for some good dinner table trivia.
- Time Magazine reports that music can change your brain. The magazine published, “Children who not only regularly attended music classes, but also actively participated in the class, showed larger improvements in how the brain processes speech and reading scores than their less-involved peers.”
- A 2015 study detailed in The Washington Post demonstrates that music lessons “spur emotional and behavioral growth in children.”
There’s lots more science and FUN about the magic of music on their Facebook page.
