· Do you ever “catch yourself” tapping your foot to music?
· Do you have more endurance when exercising to music?
· Did you learn your alphabet with the ABC Song?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above, you have personally experienced the amazing impact music has on our brains, both consciously and subconsciously. Neuroscience research shows that music changes the way our brains function. This has astounding implications for using music as a therapeutic tool to address developmental or rehabilitative goals for people of all ages challenged with neurological or developmental disabilities.
