The Impact of Instrumental Music Learning on Attainment at Age 16: A Pilot Study
Hallam, Susan; Rogers, Kevin
British Journal of Music Education, v33 n3 p247-261 Nov 2016
There is increasing international evidence that playing a musical instrument has a positive impact on attainment at school but little research has been undertaken in the UK. This study addresses this drawing on data on attainment at age 11 and 16 relating to 608 students, 115 of whom played a musical instrument. The fndings showed that the young people playing an instrument showed greater progress and better academic outcomes than those not playing with the greatest impact for those playing the longest. The fndings are considered in relation to the possible reasons for this, and the implications for education.
