London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall
Learning a musical instrument has long been valued by educationalists for its effects on cognitive development and its impact on social and emotional skills. But music charity executive Rob Adediran says that we are missing one of its most important collateral benefits: resilience. Adediran is the executive director of London Music Masters a charity which has taught over 2500 children in the past ten years. He explains why resilience might be music’s greatest gift to young people today.
