Using Music to Close the Academic Gap

great idea using music –  no doubt – but perhaps for wrong reasons… which then compromises – esp the power of music..

[forgive a little rant..]

ie: why would we want to study how something influences classroom skills…?

all these.. brilliant minds doing 5yr research here, 10yrs there…
why are they missing their assumed sample sets controlling environment..
not only that.. but perpetuating it by the statement of their findings..
every sentence/paragraph/story to end with… and they did well on the  test.. graduated..
got better at classroom skills..
oh my.
save us you lost generation you…
good bye cycle.. via the millennials… no?

closing gap because we ll find assumed poor have what we need… crave…no?

imagine if we watch process unfold in 1 year.. by first returning turtles shells 

could make an impact on academic trajectory ?
yes.. and that is our unquestioned goal ..success outcome… ?
for 100% of humanity.

who’s being more ridiculous…?
what about stepping away from the research goggles .. and noticing where the most soul wrenching music comes from..

perhaps some (all?) souls reject the nature of schools .. because schools/researchers are rejecting the nature of soul/souls … no?


and there’s always – playing for change..

How playing music benefits your brain, more than any other activity

Playing music has been found to increase the volume and activity in the brain’s corpus callosum — the bridge between the two hemispheres — allowing messages to get across the brain faster and through more diverse routes.
