We’re continuing our weekly #WednesdayWisdom series on how music is beneficial to you with part five: Music promotes empathy

05 - empathyMusical training doesn’t just improve your brain’s sound-processing centres; it also increases its capacity to detect emotions in sound.

Learning music also bodes well for helping children with emotional-perception problems, such as autism. Proving yet again that music is really for everyone!
