After the talk and the lively discussion was finished, a young woman, Linda Rodgers, introduced herself. She is a 2nd grade teacher in the 95th St. School as well as a violin teacher in the evening. Linda asked if she and her school could be involved in our research aimed at showing that music training could enhance math performance.

The successful Preschool study [16], published in 1997, showed that the three-year-old children receiving 6 months of piano keyboard training improved on spatial-temporal reasoning 30% more than did children in control groups (including those receiving language training on a computer), as shown in Fig. 3. This enhancement lasted for at least several days (unlike the 10–15 minutes for the Mozart effect listening), which means that it could be of strong educational interest. These results represent the start, rather than the end, of the story of how music can enhance how we think, reason, and create.

No relevant research has been done with infants, but such studies should definitely be done in a careful and scientific manner. 1 Behavior, working time, and number of errors for four groups of rats in a spatial maze after undergoing extensive listening conditions for months. 448), the Glass group listened to the same piece of music by Philip Glass that was used as a control in the Mozart effect study (see Fig. 2), one group listened to white noise, and a fourth group listened to silence.
