Music training can physically alter a student’s brain in beneficial ways.
The brain isn’t technically a muscle. However, learning to read music and playing an instrument can exercise the brain by creating new pathways and connections that enrich the learning experience, and not just for music.
Music training alters the physicality of the brain’s white matter, which is responsible for carrying messages throughout the brain. It also enhances the gray matter where the brain processes information. By learning music through WhiteHat Jr, students can boost their ability to engage their minds for all sorts of activities, including learning other subjects.
In the beginning, WhiteHat Jr reviewed its capabilities and will offer guitar and piano lessons due to the international appeal of those instruments.
Music lessons can help students learn math more productively, according to a recent article in Discovery magazine. Studies suggest a correlation between high performance in music and achievement in mathematics. The dual availability of math and music on the same platform can provide consistency for children looking to build their math skills.
