Edinburgh Music Lessons Find “Studying Music Improves Exam Performance”


Edinburgh, UK, August 21, 2012 -- According to figures obtained from the SQA, there is a close link between the a study of Music and achieving good grades at Standard Grade and Higher level, as yet further proof of the importance of learning a musical instrument in the education process.

Of students achieving 8 Standard Grades at band 1 or more, 30.4% studied music, compared to an average of 14.9% at Standard Grade level. The results at Higher level are equally impressive, with 11.1% of students attaining 5 Highers in one sitting having studied music, compared to just 7.6% of all students at Higher level.

Jennifer Anderson of Edinburgh Music
Lessons, an Edinburgh-based private music tuition service, said the statistics show a correlation between good exam performance and the study of music.

"At both Higher and Standard Grade levels, there is a clear link between achieving really good grades and studying music. Of those students that excel at both levels, a higher-than-average proportion study music, and it's no coincidence that the two correlate."

"We already know learning a musical instrument has a profound impact on achievement in school, but it also helps in developing problem solving skills, spatial awareness and social and confidence skills that stay with us for the rest of our lives."

To help encourage more young people to learn music, Edinburgh Music Lessons is currently offering free trial lessons to students across Edinburgh in guitar, singing, and drums.
