Playing an instrument requires both sides of your brain to play – both the left side of your brain and the right side.
Most subjects that are taken in school require the use of your left side. This is the side of your brain that deals with logic, analyzing, writing, and numbers. In music, there are different numerical values for notes and rests, and you also read and write music. When playing in a band – especially one that requires soloing (like jazz), there are certain elements you have to analyze – the dynamics of the band (soft or loud, shuffled beats or straight beats, etc.). All of this is done with the left side of the brain. Plus, it also controls the right side of your body – in this case, your right hand and foot.
On the other hand, the right side of your brain controls the left side of your body, which includes the left hand and foot. It also is the creative, imaginative, and emotional side of your brain – the artful side. When you are playing music, all of these elements are needed to play well. When you have analyzed the flow of the band you are in, you will need to create the emotion to flow with it. Therefore, both sides of the brain are heavily needed in music.
Since both sides are used, it enables a musician to think more clearly, and thus opens a gateway to be smarter, and to have your brain enhanced to think better.
