There is endless scientific evidence supporting the developmental benefits of kids learning to play an instrument. Among other things, it can help them improve "neurophysiological distinction" between sounds, ultimately leading to improved literacy and academic performance. But not all music education is created equal in this regard. Due to a lack of individualized attention, students in group settings tend to be less actively involved in music creation than those in private lessons. A recent Northwestern University study found that it's precisely through this "active generation and manipulation of sound that music can rewire the brain" 

So how can you ensure that you are helping to foster this active creation process for your kid?
