There have been so many articles of late that show the benefits of music education.  I thought it would be helpful to collect a bunch of the best ones I’ve seen in one place.

For parents, here’s a great starting point for research.

Here’s a treasure trove of articles that can back you in your efforts to win over your significant other, parents, or grandparents as to why you are spending so much time and money searching for the right music teacher for junior.

For music teachers, this makes for a handy marketing materials list.

These are all very informative but if you have only time for a few, I recommend reading numbers 3, 4, 9, 11.  These are from PBS, Time, National Geographic and WBUR in Boston.
