Can learning music help our children learn to read and write? Can playing in an orchestra develop social skills? What is the effect of music on children's brains? In this major new book Dr Anita Collins explains how learning music can bring about huge benefits for children. Dr Co...llins explains the ground-breaking research which shows how playing an instrument can improve language abilities, social skills, concentration, impulse control, emotional development, working memory and planning and strategy skills. Throughout the book Dr Collins provides real-life stories together with practical strategies to show the difference music learning can make to the lives of children from birth to the teenage years. 'Dr Collins' exuberance and infectious enthusiasm shine through as she persuasively argues for the importance of music in every child's education' - Professor Alan Harvey, author of Music, Evolution and the Harmony of Souls
