These are  areas related to speech and language disorders, reading disorders, concentration disorders, attention disorders and concentration problems. Research has shown that  children with learning disabilities' attention, concentration, impulse control, self-esteem, motivation and memory improve when they learn to play an instrument. music lessons are particularly suitable for children who have difficulty concentrating when there is background noise.
