Multiple Benefits of Classical Music

Overall, classical music helps students to realize their full potential. Numerous research has indicated that studying classical music results in a significant increase in the following areas:

  • Speech and reading skills
  • Focus, memory and commitment
  • Working with others, teamwork, collaboration
  • Conceptualization and improved cognitive abilities
  • Motor co-ordination due to stronger neural connections
  • Creativity, communications, and critical thinking skills

In his article Music Beyond Ethics, Riethmuller states that “music can actually elevate people into a higher realm, transforming them to further cognitive greatness.” And in a Canadian study which tested the effect of music lessons on children’s IQ scores, the result showed that children taking music lessons saw a general increase in overall IQ.
