In the Parade Magazine, June 14, 1998, page 15, there is an article called "Will Piano Lessons Make My Child Smarter?" by Vadim Prokhorov. In the article, a student does a science experiment with 72 mice. On the average, all the mice needed 10 minutes to find their way through a certain maze. The student divided the mice into 3 groups: The first group listened to heavy metal music, the second group listened to Mozart's classical music, and the third group was a control group with no music at all. The result: It took the control group an average of 5 minutes to go through the maze; the Mozart group 1 1/2 minutes to go through the maze; and the heavy metal group took 30 minutes to go through the maze.
I thought that was interesting. You should try to look up that article.
