music as health
music as affinity.. ness
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…?
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
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 http://www.brainpickings.org/2015/01/29/music-brain-ted-ed/
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.
