I highly recommend the book This is your Brain on Music. It’s a heavy read but delves into how the ear/brain mechanism works.

We communicated with music before speech was developed. Music is the only thing that uses and is stored in every part of the brain. Now think about that for a moment. It’s stored in your memory which is why it can transport you in time. It’s stored in muscle memory, it can make you dance, I move when I play bass guitar and never knew why. It’s part of my retrieval system to remember bass lines.

It’s proven that people become smarter when exposed to music education. All music appreciation classes should be restored in our school systems.
