A study led by Ingo Roden of Carl von Ossietzky University in Oldenburg, Germany found that young children who took instrumental music lessons did better than their peers on verbal memory tests.
This builds on research conducted in Canada in 2011 (http://www.psmag.com/education/music-training-enhances-childrens-verbal-intelligence-36701/) and Hong Kong in 1998 and 2003 (http://psycnet.apa.org/journals/neu/17/3/439/).
