Studying music in high school can help students process sound, language
from Education Week
Teens' brains can benefit from learning to make music, according to findings from a new study in Chicago. For more than a decade, Nina Kraus, the director of Northwestern University's Auditory Neuroscience Laboratory, has been on a quest to understand the biology of sound. Her research has explored how things like bilingualism, aging, and ambient noise show up in and change the brain. At the U.S. Department of Education, Kraus shared some of her findings on sound and the brain with a room full of policymakers, teachers and department staff.
