This was in the chapter I was reading from my textbook the other day.

The answer to the question on that page is yes, which is probably not surprising at all, but when they studied specific types of lessons in correlation to intelligence test scores, this is what they found.
Apparently I should have taken voice lessons as a child...
Just kidding. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have wanted to, seeing as how I don't sing alone in front of people. This is interesting though, isn't it?

The problem with their test is that they didn't include instruments other than piano. They are TOTALLY different. I vote a re-do!! :) But, YES, of course we know that it DOES enhance intelligence.

I agree. How smart do I get for playing the cello? That's very interesting...

Interesting! I actually wrote a paper about this in college, I wonder if I could find it...

Hmmm.... I must have taken voice lessons in the womb :)

I just don't get how you get smarter taking voice lessons rather than piano lessons. I think voice is SO much easier than piano! And I agree with Robyn...they need to have other instruments on there as well! Interesting experiment though.
