I read this interesting article about how music is helpful to other areas of learning. Evidently learning to play music helps the child be more well-rounded. It may even help ADHD.
It didn’t specify any particular instrument, just learning to play music. This doesn’t have to be expensive. I’ve purchased recorders from Dollar tree before, complete with the cleaning rod. A simple ‘learning to play the recorder book’ is all that is really needed. I had never played the recorder before but found an inexpensive book and learned with the kids one year. If I’d have read this article way back then, I probably would’ve made it more of a priority.
It’s a short article. Give it a read.
I’ll leave you to it.
Until next time, God bless,
