Neurobiologist Gordon Shaw has spent years studying the effects of music on brain development and was a part of the initial scientific studies that linked listening to Mozart's music to short-term enhanced brain functioning in college students.

Schlaug wonders whether the academic improvement measured after children learned how to play a musical instrument is a result of the music itself or if it has more to do with learning discipline, concentration and employing creative learning strategies.
