  • Learning music could be a good way to get better grades.
  • Particularly learning to play instruments (singing - a bit less) can make some students perform better at other school subjects.
  • Meanwhile, many school administrators choose to remove music education from their curriculum.
  • The reality is that learning music might be a method to increase academic achievement in other areas.
  • Researchers found this out by analyzing data from over 112,000 public school students between 2012 and 2015.
