    I looked for info about the Dana Foundation “Childhood Music Study” at Harvard University. Any data available?

    Hello David, you should look directly in Dana’s website, linked in Point 4 above. They have collected a lot of great resources on music & the brain so they should have a reference to that study there. And please feel free to share its key findings here with us if you have the chance.
