What do voice lessons do for you?
According to a study by University of Toronto at Mississauga*, there was an increase in the IQs of six year old students who were given weekly voice and piano lessons compared to the non-musical, six year old student control group. But the benefits did not stop there. Researchers** also found increases in fine motor skills, improved sound discrimination and changes to the brain's neural pathway networks. Simply put, regular music instruction and practice changes the brain's structure and function by increasing one's abilities in not just music, but in math, reading, and reasoning (problem solving).
