The research was a part of the drive to encourage more children to take up a musical instrument.

It showed that music lessons increased pupils' IQ by seven points, compared with 4.3 points for drama lessons.

Moreover, playing an instrument improves children's behavior.

Lead researcher Suasn Hallam insists that this is because working in small musical groups requires trust, respect and compromise.
