Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
I have posted many times about the power of music as we grow older–not just listening to it but also playing an instrument, even if we have never done so before. New research from Western Sydney University adds to a growing body of literature on the healing and developmental powers of music. today’s post shares some of the findings with you.
“Researchers at the Western Sydney University’s MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development say even a small amount of musical training can have long-lasting effects, particularly for seniors. They say playing a musical instrument in retirement is one of the best ways to stay mentally and physically agile.”
