Summary

Groundbreaking music educator Dr Anita Collins draws on the latest international neurological research to reveal the extraordinary and often surprising benefits of learning music for children from newborns to teenagers. Brain research has revealed something extraordinary: learning music and listening to music can grow and repair our brains at any age. Simply clapping in time can assist a young child who is struggling with reading. Learning an instrument can help children of all ages dramatically improve their ability to focus on school work, enhance their memory and improve behaviour. Playing in an orchestra develops children's social skills. Learning music can give every child an advantage, whether they are not coping at school or are doing well already. Dr Anita Collins has visited the labs of leading neuromusical researchers around the world and trialled their techniques herself. With real examples from home and school along with practical strategies, The Music Advantage shows how parents and teachers can support children's development with music from birth to the teenage years.
