Music and the Developing Brain: Results from Our Partnership with Northwestern University

Some very exciting results were found in our research partnership with Northwestern University!

One research question Dr. Nina Kraus is trying to answer is “Can music offset the ever-widening academic gap between rich and poor?” Results of the research suggest that it does, and Harmony Project students are proving just that!

For the past three years, we’ve been working with Dr. Kraus and her team of researchers to study the effects of music on developing brains. This week the results were published in the Journal of Neuroscience and covered by over 100 news outlets!
