Musicians proven to be geniuses!

Musicians proven to be geniuses!

What has long been suspected, has now been proven….musicians are geniuses!

Dr Anita Collins, Assistant Professor of Music & Arts Educations at the University of Canberra, has created a wonderfully informative animated film for TED Ed which examines some of the positive long-term effects playing a musical instrument has on the human brain.

Researchers have found that brain functions of musicians are far more active as different parts of the brain are forced to work at the same time…talk about a workout for the brain!

The research has proven that not only are musicians likely to be better at solving problems, but also storing memories and focusing more effectively!

For all those wondering how to boost your IQ and improve your memory…take up a musical instrument!
