Unfortunately, part of that is specific to fine motor control, not
music (although there are some additional regions of the brain
activated in musicians related to the hearing aspects).You'd get
similar activation from typing. Having said that, in
neurophysiology, "similar" just means you start looking at the
regions that were used in only the one context.
