A short TED Presentation showing all the different areas of the brain that are used when Musicians play a Musical Instrument.
As You watch, Please bear in mind
- It’s only recently that Neuroscientists have (last few years) started making the distinction between Passive Music Listening – and Active Music Making
- Most of the research so far is with Professional Musicians – do not make the mistake of thinking these benefits only apply to ” professional” musicians – THEY DO NOT!
- Meaningfull Music Making Can give everyone’s brain a really good workout – provided you go all in – the same way a good diet and exercise can help people, at all levels ” from the neck down”
