Music lessons boost the brain, teens’ views on school and obesity concern
Researchers measured electrical activity in the region of the brain that processes sound while participants listened to a recording of the speech syllable “da”. Some 44 people in their 50s, 60s and 70s took part in the study at the auditory neuroscience laboratory at Northwestern University in Illinois, US. Despite none of the participants having played an instrument in nearly 40 years, people who had completed four to 14 years of music training in early life had quicker responses to the sound compared to those that had never studied music. Previous work by the same team found that people were better listeners if they’d taken music lessons as a child. Teenagers want to learn more life skills at school Teenagers think there is inadequate opportunity to gain life skills at school, a survey has found. Pupils said they also found it difficult to connect the relevance of what they learned in lessons to their future aims because there was little association between class content and career preferences and teachers did not know what their hopes for the future were.

The researchers said: Early musical training does more good for kids than just making it easier for them to enjoy music. Beneficial: Starting piano lessons before the age of seven may turbo-charge the brain, a study has found It changes their brain and these brain changes could lead to cognitive advances as well. The Chinese researchers studied the brains of 48 men and women aged between 19 and 21. HRT could help help prevent embarrassing ‘senior moments’ when the pressure is on All had done at least a year of music practice, with some starting as young as three.
