Frances Rauscher of the University of California, Irvine,...compared 19 preschoolers who were given 15 minutes a week of private keyboard instruction and participated in group singing at preschool to 14 classmates who were enrolled in no special music programs.
After eight months, Rauscher found that the children who had received music instruction had a 46% average increase in spatial IQ; their classmates improved an average of only 6%.
"Music instruction can improve a child's spatial intelligence for long periods of time—perhaps permanently," Rauscher told the American Psychological Association.
