Product Details


“Easy to digest and packed full of fascinating observations, this will leave parents and educators eager to incorporate music into their child’s life.”—Publishers Weekly

“As it states in this wonderful book, ‘Music is the gift that keeps on giving.’ It’s true! I’ve not only witnessed it, I’ve experienced it since birth. But I’ve never seen it laid out so simply and thoroughly. All kids benefit from music. The Music Advantage not only shows you how, it shows you why. This book is important for our future.”—Victor L. Wooten, author of The Music Lesson

“A must-read for every parent and teacher.”—John Powell, author of How Music Works

The Music Advantage is the book I always wanted to exist, and now it does! It reveals new insights, showing the power and magic that music has on the neurological wellbeing and development of children, and all of us.”—Stephon Alexander, Ph.D., author of The Jazz of Physics and Professor of Physics, Brown University

“Dr. Anita Collins’ insights, based on extensive practical research, highlight the irreplaceable role music plays in the full education of a child. The Music Advantage is essential reading for parents, educators and policy designers.”—Benjamin Northey, Principal Conductor in Residence of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

The Music Advantage is fascinating. This book helps parents to understand how valuable learning music is to a child’s development, starting in preschool up until their first job interview.”—Allie Ticktin, MA, OTD, OTR/L; founder of Play 2 Progress

“Dr. Collins’ exuberance and enthusiasm shine through as she persuasively argues for the importance of music in every child’s education.”—Alan Harvey, author of Music, Evolution, and the Harmony of Souls

“Drawing from her dialogue with scientists, music teachers, and her own relationship to music, Anita Collins makes an argument for music education told through stories we can see ourselves in.”—Nina Kraus, Ph.D., Hugh Knowles Professor of Communication Sciences, Neurobiology, and Otolaryngology, Northwestern University

“Two decades of neuroscientific and psychological research into the effects of learning music on our brains are condensed into a highly readable, fascinating, and important book. Important because the overwhelming evidence is that music education will benefit every child—and thus it should be part of their overall education.”—Loudmouth magazine

“Shows the value of music education on brain development and includes practical tips for harnessing melody and rhythm to increase learning in all areas.”—Library Journal

“A grand volume that avails us to yet another level of groundbreaking research highlighting the extraordinary benefits music offers to the positive growth and development of every child.
