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.
