High performing students do even better if they are enrolled in ongoing music classes

SUMMARY:

Research from Quebec in Canada found that high-performing students did even better when they were enrolled in ongoing music classes. The study by Harvard University found that among a group of high-performing high school students, grades were consistently higher for those who continued with music classes compared to those who dropped them after two years of compulsory training.
