Adolescents involved with music do better in school according to research by The Ohio State University. The study reveals that taking part in music lessons in or out of school, and parents attending concerts with their children, has a positive effect on reading and mathematic achievement in early childhood and adolescence – and that participation is affected by socioeconomic status and ethnicity.
