Music and the Brain…

Hi everyone,

As someone who has done a bit of work and study in the field of Music Therapy, I have seen firsthand just how powerful music can be when used in the right way. Some of you may have come across the author Oliver Sacks, a British-American neurologist who has an intense interest in the effects of music on the brain. His book ‘Musicophilia’ was what sparked my interest in the subject, and is a definite must-read for anyone intrigued by the power of music. Below is an infographic I found that sums up how music stimulates the brain. If you ever needed any convincing to learn an instrument, this is it!

What other activity involves so much of the brain? It is truly amazing!

Happy playing,

Camille
