Music training linked to enhanced verbal skills

"Music training, with its pervasive effects on the nervous system’s ability to process sight and sound, may be more important for enhancing verbal communication skills than learning phonics, according to a new Northwestern University study."

"Oliver Sacks has an interview in the latest Wired, talking about his new book Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain with Steve Silberman. This sounds like a fantastic book -- a real Sacks-ian exploration of all the wild and illuminating ways the brain has of dealing with music. "

Alive and kicking, just not blogging

I've been getting the nicest emails, lately.

"Where are you, Molly?"

"I don't want to bother, or get too personal, but is everything okay?"

"We miss your blogging!"

Well. Thank you.

And yes, I am fit as a fiddle, and a-okay. Sorry to have made you all worry. Of course, I would have likely done the same thing if one of you suddenly stopped blogging. In the last few month's, however, I've been been immersed in learning my new role with ABC Music & Me. It's not really a new role anymore, and finally, I feel like I can come up for air. Plus, my band has really been taking off. We recently won the Battle of the Bands in Ziggy's. And, I've recently welcomed a new distraction into my life. Ain't he cute?

Still, it's great to be missed, and I'll still be probably blogging less. That just means you'll have to pick up the slack. Looking forward to seeing it.
