Is there any Scientific Research Indicating that Music Helps Children & Adults Mentally?

Yes, thorough evidence has been accumulated.  One resource with such evidence is found at Health Rhythms Defined (Remo) - A Proven Music Therapy/Drumming Program with Positive, Life Changing Results Furthermore, researchers such as Dr. Oliver Sacks has confirmed that certain areas of the brain, including the auditory and motor cortex, actually develop and grow through participation in music making.  Dr. Sacks has repeatedly observed, through neuro-technology, that musicians have more developed "musical regions" of the brain as compared to non-musicians.  Dr. Sacks has been examining the relationship of music and the brain for about four decades.

Dr. Sacks' 2007 book Musicophilia (love of music) gives real life stories of the profound effect that music has on people and reveals that "music occupies more areas of our brain than language does...".  Further, Dr. Sacks concludes, "We humans are a musical species no less than a linguistic one."

For more published scientific research on music and the brain, behavior and more, please visit MUSICA, The Music and Science Computer Archive.  And for even more study and insight we recommend reading The Healing Power of the Drum by  Dr. Robert Lawrence Friedman.
