Music is the language of the soul. According to recent studies, music play a huge role in the development of a child. Musical instruments, as simple as a drum for beating, helps a toddler develop the concept of cause and effect and hand coordination. When they get older, those that progress to musical instruments like the mandolin and its accessories like flatwound mandolin strings seem to have more creativity and artistry too. Studies have shown the babies in utero who listen to classical music tend to have higher IQs than those who weren’t exposed to music.
