MUSIC MAKES LEARNING EASIER
Playing a musical instrument improves learning skills. People, who play any instrument including guitar, drums, piano, violin, etc. has higher level of perception. Study conducted by students of Department of Psychology, Izmir University of Economics (IUE) revealed that people who played musical instrument(s) learned easier than those who did not.
Senior students Selen Deniz Odabaşı, Melis Özaydın, İsmail Erbatu, and Elif Çağla Ertekin’s study as part of “Cognitive Psychology Course” proved that people who made music were more successful. Selen Deniz Odabaşı stated that 30 people who played a musical instrument and 30 people who did not play an instrument participated in the study. She said that they studied people who played a musical instrument especially in tasks that required using both hands as opposed to those who didn’t play an instrument.
‘Instrument is very useful’
Odabaşı stated that they used Vienna Test System, a computer-assisted psychological assessment, and Two-Hand Coordination Test. She stated the following:
“Each of our participants was given a task and they were asked to complete that task. We wanted them to move forward the task bars on a dual complex plane. The results revealed that learning skills of people who played a musical instrument were more improved, and when they were given a new task, they adapted to it quicker.”
