This is your brain on music

Research , combined with technology, can now teach us how to improve ourselves and our lives. This little video is all science and research and yet it is absorbing, informative, clear and well researched. Videos now make it possible to ingest complex information which can then be followed up more deeply by other resources. It is interesting to know there is a difference in brain activity when you listen to music which is more enhanced when you actually play music. With technology and research we can now literally see which activities engage the brain and how. Playing music is one of the activities which engages the whole brain. We all used to learn the recorder and do percussion at school. We all used to sing and be part of a choir. There was a reason for that which educators at the time would have known intuitively. It is literally about a holistic education. Technology can now explain that to us so we understand.

Sound Cloud for Musicians

clip from sound cloud site Sound Cloud is following what is now a tried and true format for visual creations but is encouraging the work of musicians. It is an online peer review community where you can upload sound works in progress or polished pieces and get feedback from your online personal network and community. It means any musician or aspiring musician can get an understanding ear and some good encouragement from online friends. Fantastic idea because you can work at your own level but benefit from experts if they are included in your online community. It also means you are not working in isolation and able to find that much needed audience for your work.

Tom Lehrer’s The Elements Song

There are a few versions of this song on YouTube but TimwiTerby’s is the one I have picked because you end up with a copy of the periodic table and the images are clear. From a teaching point of view , this is what you need – visual clarity and well ordered information. Tom Lehrer also has some good Maths songs which might liven up a lesson. We are a specialist music school so I’d love to hear our students singing in science class or singing a science song!
