Music is a tool that allows you to express feelings, emotions, circumstances, thoughts or ideas, and increasingly, fulfill an important therapeutic function through music therapy. Music also helps cognitive development, collaborates with mathematical logical thinking, language acquisition, psychomotor development, interpersonal relationships, learning non-native languages and enhancing emotional intelligence among others. For this reason, music must be present in any modern educational plan and recognized as an essential discipline within teaching since it helps concentration, memory, discipline and precision. The moment the brain is challenged to divide into several functions that require concentration, as happens when playing an instrument, it improves all its functions. Music is a stimulus that affects the perceptual field of every human being and fulfills the functions of entertainment, communication, atmosphere, fun, etc. Studies have shown that the practice of musical instruments causes the two cerebral hemispheres to form new connections, the realization of which generates better performance in the fields of concentration, memory and learning. On a mental level, it is also very useful to facilitate learning in other languages. Characteristics of music such as tone, timbre, rhythm or intensity, have a lot to do with variations in the speech of different languages. Each language has a different accent, and the same thing happens in music. We have different rhythms, tones and timbres that we could couple to the learning of new languages.
