Sweet music!

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, July 1, 2014 10:47 AM


A bit of a edu-tisement for U.F. but this graphic has a ton of info points on music and it's value in learning.

Terry Doherty's curator insight, July 1, 2014 12:44 PM

The bottom line is that U of F wants you to think about being a music educator. I really focused on the research about how music helps with language skills.

The Case For The Arts In Overhauling Education : NPR

The Case For The Arts In Overhauling Education : NPR | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

One of the ongoing debates in education is whether so much testing in schools is taking away time for young people to develop their own critical thinking and creativity. At the same time, the White House has talked about the importance of innovation when it comes to staying competitive in the global market. The intersection of both of these issues could be the arts. Weekend Edition Sunday host Rachel talks with NPR's Elizabeth Blair about her reporting on the role the arts play in helping low performing schools improve, and in nurturing creativity that can help young people in all subjects.

For a lot of students, the one class they might actually enjoy is art class, or music. This holds true from kindergarten through high school graduation and beyond.

An interesting article on why loving music is a great thing for your minds health! A must read.

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.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Music can be deafening, relaxing, energizing, upbeat and downbeat. It is a univeral mode of communication that can be channeled in all directions for multiple purposes. Life without music? Can't imagine it!

Kenneth Weene's curator insight, May 12, 2013 11:11 AM

Music is one of the most powerful communication devices. Coupled with mass media and the Internet, it can help shape societies -- for good or ill. There is always a mix of the musician's world view and his/her personal goals. This is fascinating stuff.

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.
