As far back as recorded history, music has always been a part of our culture. It is in our day-to-day lives, it is all around us from ambient music in the grocery store to birds singing in the park. In the past two decades, studies have shown the myriad of benefits that learning music, and especially playing a musical instrument produces in not only children, but adults as well. Music has been shown to benefit those who suffer from Alzheimer's and other neurological and mental disorders. It has even been shown to improve physical performance in athletes.
Few learn music taught parent-to-child. Public education school music programs are generally taught by teachers with little or no real music training and with no one-to-one focused training. That is why having music lessons outside or in addition to what is offered in schools, with trained professionals, is important and advantageous. In addition to cognitive and motor skills development, music training can also be an asset when applying for college scholarships.
