The article discusses the important role that music plays in a child's learning development. According to research that Ellen Winner helped conduct, those kids who have played musical instruments such as piano or string instruments for at least three years scored 15% higher in vocabulary, and 11% higher in reading. She further says that results prove that practice pays off, and the attention and concentration learned are skills that help in any walk of life.
