The benefits of music learning

Learning to play a musical instrument or to sing brings extraordinary, lifelong benefits. Why? Because when you’re working on your instrument or voice, you’re also working on yourself. On the one hand, you draw on a group of cognitive skills: thinking, controlling, analysing and reading. In musical terms, this is about measuring pulse and rhythm, reading and recognising pitch, and controlling physical coordination and fine motor skills. On the other hand, you call on more instinctive and emotional abilities relating to imagination, perception, creative understanding and musical meaning. John Holmes, our Chief Examiner, explains in this article.
