Does Music Make You Smarter?
Rauscher, Frances
PTA Today, v20 n5 p8-9 May-Jun 1995

Research indicates the spatial reasoning performance of preschoolers who receive music lessons far exceeds that of comparison students. Even listening to music proves beneficial to spatial reasoning. Music training seems also to benefit economically disadvantaged children. (SM)
