Practising Music Improves The Symmetry Of Your Brain

Here’s an interesting article that speaks about how the brains of practicing instrumentalists differs from those of people who don’t play an instrument (I’m not certain if vocalists are covered, since there’s no physical instrument in their hands). Essentially, brain symmetry, the communication between left and right hemispheres, is increased – particularly for keyboardists. This can lead to heightened hearing, dexterity, pitch and speech recognition and even picking up on emotional changes.
