Music is so naturally united with us that we cannot be free from it even if we so desired
-Boethius

Music, like other forms of art, has more emotional value than the sound vibrations or paint strokes that make them.

As shown in many studies, music has countless benefits, including:

  • Increasing IQ[1]
  • Increasing SAT scores[2]
  • Getting into medical school[3]
  • Helping stroke victims relearn how to speak [4]
  • Improved emotional health[5]
  • Reducing stress[6]
