"Listening to and making music is not only an auditory experience, but it is a multisensory and motor experience. Making music over a long period of time can change brain function and brain structure," Schlaug said in the release.
Painting on the other hand stimulates the diverse areas of the brain and improves the creative thinking of a child. Drawing, painting, sketching etc allows brain's hemispheres to work in tandem.
