Music is not just for relaxing and listening pleasure as there are people who are said to benefit by listening with music before or during studying. And did you know that playing music can change your mental ability? There was a research conducted in Stanford University stating that musical training improves how the brain processes the spoken word.

Playing musical instrument has cognitive benefits according to the said research and so, if you want to engage in a hobby that will have a positive benefit to your mental ability, head on to musical instrument.
