Evidence Based Research

At Team Musicare, we understand the profound impact music and music mentoring can have‬ on individuals. This belief is not just rooted in our experiences but is also backed by‬ extensive scientific research. Here, we delve into some key findings that highlight how music‬ can be a transformative tool for personal development, well-being, and social connection.‬

‬Enhancing Cognitive Abilities:‬

Research has consistently shown that engaging in musical activities can improve various cognitive functions. Studies suggest that music training can enhance memory, attention, and even intelligence (IQ) in both children and adults. For instance, a study published in the Journal of Educational Psychology found that students who received music instruction had improved sound discrimination and fine motor tasks, leading to better academic performance.

‬Social Skills and Community Building:‬

Music mentoring and group musical activities foster social cohesion and enhance interpersonal skills. According to a study in the Music Education Research Journal, group music-making activities help develop key social skills such as cooperation, empathy, and respect for others.

‭ Emotional Well-being and Stress Reduction:‬

Music has a unique ability to regulate emotions, reduce stress, and even alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety. A study in the Journal revealed that music can significantly decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol, thereby promoting relaxation and emotional well-being.

‬‭Supporting Physical Health:‬

Engaging in music, especially playing instruments and singing, has been linked to improved respiratory and cardiac function. For example, research in the American Journal of Medicine showed that group drumming could lead to improved immune system responses. At Team Musicare, we are committed to harnessing these benefits of music and music mentoring to positively impact the lives of our clients.
