Different brain waves are given off in the brain when we listen to different music (rock, jazz, classical). Exciting research—NOT.
music & math
Our brains develop based on stimuli they receive, and some of that includes auditory stimuli, or sounds: music, language, other noises.
Marching band brings benefits to students and is a powerful formative tool in instruction: academically and non-academically.
We look, once again, at teen learning styles & propose that, while they are neuromyths, they can help instruction.
Music affects us in many ways, but can it help us remember what we learn? Studies are equivocal on the question, and it may depend on the individual.
Students decide early in life if they have any musical “talent,” and that predicts whether they take music classes later. They don’t see music ability as a skill.
If you play a musical instrument (or two…), you response time to sensory stimuli may be faster than it is for non-musicians. No causation here, just an interesting correlation.
Research shows that runners’ brains, like those of musicians, are more connected in their networks of neurons. What’s that about?
As they play an instrument, musicians’ brains process several different types of information, and lots of it, in parallel, new research hints.
Understanding how emotional trauma affects the brain can guide music teachers in unlocking the full potential of each student.
