well in sheet music they use math for the time to figure out the beat and how fast or slow the music is and how many notes in a measure.

### Do students in music programs do better at math?

Well it all depends, some people like music more than math, or
math better then music. If music is something you love, or have a
real good interest, it could excite you, then just sitting down
using your brain to learn and complete math problems. If you listen
to more music then just watching TV all day long yes, music program
is able to help you in math. Depending how much effort you put in
your math work :)

### Is math and music related?

YES....TO BE MORE EXACT MUSIC IS ALL MATH, MATH IS ALL MUSIC
MAth is music, music is math: they both have counting,
fractions(4/4 time,or meter), and numbers in them-I like to call
music the sounds or the soundings of Math(ematics)
For the most part, if one wants to get a great grip on music,
understanding the mathematical concepts of it will make the musical
concepts a piece of cake-in a deep manor, to understand music
theory, you need to understand its mathematics to a massively
extreme extent(you cant really understand music, until you can
understand its math)-music is more mathematical than music
itself-Again, i like to call music: the sounds of math, or/and the
equation of music-the notation themselves are symbols of
mathematics
Hope this helps-to get more info on this i insist in drum

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### What is the relation between music and mathematics?

You count the beats of each note, and there is a limited number
of beats per measure, although there can be ties, which hold one
note to another measure.
Recent brain research has shown that the same part of the
brain that is used for music is used for math, so by taking music
the theory states, you are helping your math skills. Rap is not
included in this since it only affects the reptile brain area and
does nothing for critical thinking needed in math. Classical music
is the best.

###### Asked in Music, Math and Arithmetic

### How is math related to music?

The beats in music are counted in maths.
Also, there are many patterns and structures (not obvious at
first) that are standard in a great deal of music, and they are
determined with numbers.

###### Asked in Music

### Does music help with school?

yes it does! that was actually a great question! music helps in
math, science, and history. Math: music helps with timing and
simple math problems. like how many beats are in a given measure.
Science: what causes certain notes to come out the way they do.
History: how long ago was it that music became popular.
