Music-based program helps children develop verbal intelligence: Study

Toronto Sun:

Preschool children learning to analyze information and solve problems using language-based reasoning thrive when taught using music, a new Canadian study has found.

In the study, 48 children between the ages of four and six took part in computer-based, cognitive training programs that were projected onto a classroom wall. The lessons were delivered by colourful, animated cartoon characters.

The children were divided into two groups: One received music-based training while the second group was given visual arts training.

Both groups received two hour-long training sessions a day for four weeks, led by instructors from The Royal Conservatory in Toronto.
