Music education helps kids improve language, reading

Kuhlau Sonatina Notes

As a music education researcher, I enjoy reading about a variety of elements that aim at getting to the core values of what teachers teach, how teachers teach, how students learn and how we all can learn from each other.

There are many countless articles that have been written over the past few years that have looked into the various elements of music education and how these various elements improve the overall learning experience of a child. Areas such as increased spatial awareness, an increased understanding of problem solving skills, and a strong sense of organizational skills, among other findings, have created a strong argument for the true benefits that naturally are a part of the learning processes that accompany music education.

Take a look at the article here:

One element strikes me every time interesting information like this is published: students that enjoy music lessons always have strong organizational skills.

Even though this is the case in many scenarios, students might not know how to use their time wisely while they are practicing their music. This is the fundamental reasoning behind a neat app, developed by MyMuCo, that is designed to encourage music students to enjoy practicing and stay organized. To learn more, visit:

Let’s continue to strive to inspire a lifelong love of learning, one student and one app at a time!
