Costa-Giomi, Eugenia
Journal of Research in Music Education, v47 n3 p198-212 Fall 1999
Examines the effects of 3 years of piano instruction on children's cognitive abilities. Finds that children's general cognitive and spatial abilities improved significantly, but those improvements were only temporary. Believes that the positive effects on the children's cognitive abilities were dependent upon their dedication to learning the piano. (CMK)
