Music training can help increase your working memory as well as auditory learning. (Strickland). Music training can help flex a high-working memory load. It helps expand your working memory capacity, and therefore reduces impairing effects of a memory overload (Klemm). An experiment done with second graders from an elementary school showed proof of this.

Music has long been used as a method in which students learn in school and studies have shown that listening to music has the ability to help influence academic levels and progress for children who experience a social setback, as well as mental development and social skills. Childhood and particularly adolescence is a time in which one discovers preferences and they become and shape ones identity. Music is a very big part of mainstream culture, it is always made available, whether it be in the car, on t.v., or even while shopping. Music helps avoid the silence and feeling of loneliness that would exist without it. Because music has such an important part in daily life, there are many variations to satisfy everyone’s personal taste.
