Training in musical improvisation may teach your brain to think differently: Skilled improvisers detect easy-to-substitute chords faster than non-improvisers, says study

Skilled improvisers were better than musicians with limited improvisational experience at distinguishing between chords that can be used interchangeably in a piece of music and those that cannot, a new study finds. The results suggest that musical improvisation, like so many other skills, improves with practice as the brain learns to categorize musical structures in a new way.
