"Until recently, establishing cause and effect for music’s mental impact has been difficult. But long-term studies peering into brain structure and activity are now showing that musical training changes the brain in lasting ways."

"it’s music’s dual ability to distract attention (a psychological effect) while simultaneously goosing the heart and the muscles (physiological impacts) that makes it so effective during everyday exercise."

" (...) insight into the ways in which musical experience can enhance the processing of both linguistic and paralinguistic cues paves the way for development of musical training therapies aimed at improving communication for persons with APD and autism spectrum disorders."

"The findings indicate that musicians also perform better than non-musicians on tasks of auditory attention and on receiving and processing auditory information in challenging listening environments."

"Evidence suggests that musical training, especially from an early age, fine-tunes a person’s hearing not just for music but also for emotional aspects of speech."

"Words and music, such natural partners that it seems obvious they go together. Now science is confirming that those abilities are linked in the brain, a finding that might even lead to better stroke treatments. "
