How does music help?

I read a good article and wanted to share.

We have all heard of the Mozart effect, where music helps create extra and stronger pathways in the brain.

Music stimulates different areas of the brain, including language, emotion, math, etc. It can reinforce skills that children learn in school, in therapy, and at home. It allows children to express themselves, which becomes especially important to children who are frustrated at how their body works or who cannot speak like their peers.

Most of all, making music builds self-confidence and joy, something every child and adult needs.
