New brain study reveals how music can change the structure of children’s brains, enhancing emotional and intellectual development, boosting decision-making network

Learn/study while listening to Mozart (It has been proven that the best result can be achieved with Mozart.) recorded in 432 Hz. (Low volume!)

(You will absolutely NOT get the same amazing effects and results by listening to the crap that can be found on YouTube, where they took Mozart’s pieces, slowed them down and changed pitch to 432 Hz.

All instruments really need to be tuned to 432 Hz before recording!!!).


New brain study reveals how music can change the structure of children’s brains, enhancing emotional and intellectual development, boosting decision-making network:

Two new studies from the Brain and Creativity Institute at the University of Southern California have revealed that even just two years of music instruction has multiple benefits.

Music training can alter both the structure of the brain’s white matter, which transfers signals through the brain, and gray matter, which has most of the brain’s neurons that are active in processing information. It also improves brain network engagements that optimize decision-making abilities and the capacity to focus attention.

These findings have been talked about in studies that have been recently published in scientific journals, including one in the journal Cerebral Cortex. They are the result of an ongoing longitudinal study that started in 2012, when the institute – which is based at the USC Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences – partnered with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association and Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) to analyze the effects of music instruction on children’s emotional, cognitive, and social development.
