To touch musical instruments improves the reading and languages learning


At present there is carried out the annual congress of the AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) in San Diego, and there numerous scientific interest investigations are appearing. In this case, one relative to the area of the health, specifically to the musicoterapia, is of our interest.

I refer to a work realized by Nina Kraus, neurologist of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, who has worked with children who were touching instruments to explore his cerebral functioning. Kraus found a very positive effect in it, which would allow to the children to develop his cognitive skills.

First of all Kraus observed that the children who touch musical instruments have a major facility to generate reading habit, since it has an impact on the capacity of the brain in processing information. This way, the trained persons musically can face the reading of a more organized way and with a better aptitude to understand what is read.
