(Did I already post this at some point? My poor, poor brain! Sorry if this is a repeat!)

Besides helping hear speech in noise, musical training correlates with higher reading scores. And Kraus and her team have found musicians are better able to catch the emotional content of sound. These aren’t just skills you pick up like you’re learning to knit – Kraus says musical training seems to actually restructure the brain.

The above and so much more can be read here.

But my fave? It’s this:

Musicians spend so much time manipulating to the sound from their instruments, listening to the output from their teacher and mimicking it, communicating musically with other perfumers. And that can translate into how we process speech.

Because … well … everyone wants to communicate with perfumers! Right? 😉
