Le Marche Music from XV century

From an extraordinary manuscript, heart-shaped, found in the Oliveriana Library in Pesaro. It dates back to the XVth century. We have no idea who wrote these wonderful pages of music; a wayfarer, a poet in love, a prince perhaps? Why? And what were these scores used for? What secrets does this mysterious book still hide today? This is the theme of the hand-written scores in the thin watermark of the heart. It has been divulged "ad libitum" in the hall of the Metropolitan Museum in New York that preserves the "studiolo" of Gubbio of the Duke Federico da Montefeltro.

Music is beneficial anywhere, anytime!

Mac Cagle's curator insight, May 1, 2013 11:49 PM

This is a simple one but I always like lists like these. It proclaims that musical education early in ones life can help children learn and think in different ways. As well as little fun fact I found interesting, that students with an art background tend to do better on the SAT test.

I can atest to music helping with learning and thinking differently, I have my two younger siblings to show for this.

The Surprising Science Behind What Music Does To Our Brains

The Surprising Science Behind What Music Does To Our Brains | Music Education |

You're probably listening to music in your headphones at work right now. Whether you are powering through your to-do list or brainstorming creative ideas, here is how the tunes you are playing affect how your brain works.

Kirsten Macaulay's insight:

We all know through personal experience, that certain music will make us feel a certain way. It would be area that could have further exploration, and refining to help more people.

This is interesting! I thought that listening to loud music improved my concentration while studying, but then I guess this was a fallacy. Some of the beliefs proved wrong in this article are as follows:1 When it comes to creative work, loud music may not be the best option. 2

sometimes we can understand the emotions of a piece of music without actually feeling them. 3 Drivers made more mistakes and drove more aggressively when listening to their own choice of music.

These are some surprising revelations which force us to think more about listening to music-it doesn't mean I will stop listening to music, rather it is about being more careful while driving and listening to music, and yes, this is important for all students!

For some reason, I am in love with this article. Belle Beth Copper is a content crafter at Buffer. Co-founder of Hello Code. Copper quote's Friedrich Nietzsche saying "without music, life would be a mistake." She uses ethos in the first parts of the article. She state how our emotions are affected by our music. She gives eight statements and explain in detailed each. The eight statement are:

1.) Music is a big part of our lives.

2.) Ambient noise can improve creativity.

3.) Our music choices can predict our personality.

4.) Music can significantly distract us while driving.

5.) Music training can improve our reasoning skills.

6.) Classical music can improve visual attention.

7.) One side Phone calls are more distracting than normal conversation.

8.)Music help us exercise.


This article goes in detail with each statements.

This is interesting to me becasue one of my primary goals in life is heal people through music. Pass research about music and the effect  it has on the brain allowed me to connect with most of the information. I didn't  know Ambient noise inhances creativity, amazing.

Why your brain loves music

New neuroscience study sets out to explain why in some respects music offers the same sort of pleasure as a really good thriller.

Fantastic article exploring the deep connections music helps us make.

Podreu descobrir que diuen els últims estudis sobre el perquè el nostre cervell li agrada tant la música.

Natalie Gaskins's curator insight, May 11, 2014 2:18 PM

One day, I would love to venture into the field that connects Neuroscience with Music and that is why this article caught my attention right away. I admit to listening to certain songs and having to completely stop whatever I am doing because it was THAT good. I always wondered why that is and why certain sounds that we hear trigger emotions, or stimulation in our brains. I can agree with what the writer said in that we set up expectations in our brains with familiar styles of music and loved to be deceived when the music takes a different direction.I also agree that it is no longer enjoyable when the music goes too astray from what my brain wanted. It just gets annoying that way! It keeps excitement in the song and makes you try to anticipate what is going to happen next. It is a way to keep the listener attentive. I know that when I song is too predictable, it quickly looses my attention. As a songwriter, I feel that this is very crucial when writing. We have to keep the audience engaged at all times. This is also why artists make certain line-up choices while performing at a gig. I thought it odd that we get a different level of satisfaction when we have paid for the music and are then anticipating the surprise. Very odd. 

I would love to venture deeper into these studies and unlock more neurological secrets. Knowledge like this can help sell music.
