Music Training Improves…….

In western sudies scientists are convinced that learning is directly supported by movement. The more you move the better you can learn. The more you move the easier people enjoy what they do in the process of learning. So: to sit still or to behave in a rigid way by moving “properly” or too much controlled is oppposed to learning, enjoying.
