Music and adhd go together easily, many musicians being adhd.
But practicing and drilling is tedious to add people. If there's an aptitude or desire for music, pursue it. But this isn't a treatment modality. It's more of an interest that needs to be nurtured.

There are some preliminary studies showing promise that music therapy could be helpful.
So far, the overall results show mixed outcomes. This could be due to the individual nature of children. Shows the need for more studies in this area. In addition the music therapy, individualized evaluation of nutrition w alternative education/behavior practices, could be helpful w symptoms.

Good for any child.
Auditory integration therapy & metronome therapy have not been shown to improve function in kids with adhd & actually made kids with autism more irritable in a peer-reviewed studies. Medications + behavioral therapy + environmental manipulations are what really work. Individual sports like swimming, gymnastics & even martial arts help kids control their bodies.
