Playing a musical instrument is one way to create better brain connections and better processing skills. It works by the same process as my exercises do to build a stronger brain, stronger processing skills and through that, less frustration and avoidance of school work and homework. Any time you combine senses and use more than one at a time, you are strengthening your skills. In a program like mine which uses similar tactics as playing a musical instrument, visual, auditory and motor skills are combined to create better processing skills like multi tasking, memory, speed, organization, distraction and frustration tolerance and analysis. I have been recommending playing musical instruments as a brain builder for decades to my clients. In the same way, those who want better musical skills can benefit from exercises that I do to help the brain connections be faster and better. This video explains nicely why that happens and I was excited to find it.
