Several studies have shown that music education may foster the development of executive functions (EF), a set of cognitive skills involved in memory, attention and the ability to inhibit distracting stimuli. However, the literature on the impact of music training on EF is still scarce. Thus, the aim of the present study was to investigate different components of EF, comparing children who were involved in musical activities with a group that was not. Results revealed that children who performed musical activities showed greater accuracy in inhibition tasks compared to children who did not attend music activities. Our findings are in agreement with the literature data, suggesting that music education can be a key intervention strategy to promote the development of EF, especially in the first years of primary school.
