Abstract:This project studied the correlation between musical instruction and memory among elementary and high school students. Participants with and without musical backgrounds, as well as video gamers, were tested using standardized visual, verbal, and patterning memory tests. High school musicians performed the best on all three memory tests, suggesting that playing a musical instrument can improve memory skills.
