Sunday Notes from 92Y’s School of Music Staff: Music on the Brain
Welcome to our new blog series Sunday Notes, which features staff picks from the musical minds of 92Y’s School of Music. Today, private piano and group keyboard and theory instructor Mandy Chiu shares a video she found that illustrates the benefits playing an instrument has on the brain.
Being a teacher for over 20 years, I always knew that playing music not only makes one feels amazing, it also brings clarity to the mind. I was really excited to come across this video, which shows scientific research on how music playing affects the brain!
