While waiting for my daughter's violin lesson to end this week, I received an email from The New York Times asking me to illustrate a story on how music lessons change children's brains. Okay, now I'm feeling pretty good. Apparently, music lessons early in life develop some rather important auditory skills that can stay with kids into adulthood.
The full story, written by Dr. Perri Klass, is here. Art direction by Peter Morance.
