You'll also learn to grimace musically....but only if the training is in heavy metal.

Moreover, musical training strengthened the functional connectivity of the auditory-motor network, which scaled with better behavioral performance.

Unfortunately this was offset by attendant increased rates of depression and a marked drop in survival rates past age 27 in certain populations within the sample, which we found was partially (although not completely) mitigated by consumption of copious amounts of "dank-ass ganja."

So, if musical training helps the language centers of the brain function better, what doe it mean if you are musically gifted? I am not talking about being able to play a single instrument really well, I am talking about things like playing by ear, sight reading, and musical virtuosi. I know of a family that I went to high school with that all three brothers could sight read, play multiple instruments (even ones not related to each other), sing, and play by ear. Did they start with better language skills or did they enhance them as they found out that their talents were in music?

\after the first year, they didn't even practice at home anymore
\\and they started sight reading as soon as they learned how to read music
\\\all three of them made the music teacher jealous

That's funny because I took ten years of piano lessons and I still can't figure out what the words to "Blinded by the Light" are.

All I can tell you is that it's about a feminine hygiene product which, depending on the version, has either been revved up or cut loose.

In either case, it was apparently done so by someone with poor aim, resulting in a tragic and wholly-avoidable eye injury.

    Musical skills sure have augmented my life, in a major way. They've diminished my nervousness and made minor distractions disappear. Sometimes I find myself suspended in disbelief....

First, you mean "made the music teacher envious".

Second, my son (12) is like this (learning piano, cello, ukulele, guitar, violin, and nykelharpa, reads all three clefs, knows all the main scales and chord types) but his speech processing is rather inadequate since he's autistic.
