Why Is It Beneficial to Be a Musician?

Science has demonstrated that musical instruction can improve brain structure and function. Beginning at an early age can also boost long-term memory and contribute to enhanced brain growth.

In addition, new research from the University of Montreal suggests that musicians tend to be more mentally attentive.

"The more we understand about the impact of music on fundamental sensory processes, the more we can apply musical training to individuals who may have slower reaction times," said lead researcher Simon Landry.

"We know that as people get older, their reaction times slow down," Landry explained. Therefore, if we know that playing a friday night funkin musical instrument boosts reaction times, it may be beneficial for them to play an instrument.

Landry previously discovered that musicians have quicker auditory, tactile, and audio-tactile reaction times. Musicians' statistical use of multisensory information is also altered. This means they are better at integrating input from different senses.

"Music probably does something unique," says University of Westminster neuropsychologist Catherine Loveday. Because of our emotional attachment to it, it stimulates the brain in a very powerful manner.

In contrast to mental games, playing an instrument is a rich and intricate experience. This is because it integrates information from the senses of sight, hearing, and touch, as well as fine motor movements. This can cause long-term changes in the brain. These are relevant to the business world.
