How can music therapy help children with ADHD?

Music therapy can help children with learning disorders with respect to physical, cognitive, emotional, and/or behavioral issues.

Music strengthens the areas of the brain that, in the child with ADHD, are weak. Music builds and strengthens the auditory, visual/spatial, and motor cortices of the brain.

These areas are tied to speech and language, reading, reading comprehension, math, problem solving, brain organization, focusing, concentration, and attention issues.

Studies indicate that when learning-disabled children and children with ADHD learn a musical instrument, attention, concentration, impulse control, social functioning, self-esteem, self-expression, motivation, and memory improve.

Some studies show that children who have difficulty focusing when there is background noise are particularly helped by music lessons.
