Exposure to Music: The Truth about the Consequences
This chapter examines claims about non-musical consequences of exposure to music. Over the past ten years, the possibility that music makes one smarter has sparked the imagination of researchers, the popular press, and the general public. But is there any truth to this idea? If so, what is the evidence? The goal here is to answer these questions as well as possible by reviewing the relevant scholarly literature. Accordingly, the first section of this chapter examines consequences of music listening. The second section examines consequences of music lessons and performing.
