Reading, writing, maths, language. All of these skills are improved with the addition of music. That's according to a new book by Dr Anita Collins called The Music Advantage. Anita has looked at the neuroscience behind learning and engaging with music, and there are some astounding findings about just how much music can influence the development of our brains. Anita goes back to the very beginning, and explains how even babies in utero are developing an ear for music. She also tells us all the ways you can engage your child in music to enhance their other skills. The previous podcast mentioned in this interview, The Lullaby Effect, can be found on Apple Podcasts or Stitcher.
