WHY MUSIC EDUCATION ROCKS!
Do you have a budding pianist? A drummer
wannabe? A future flutist? Playing a musical
instrument is very beneficial to children. So, why
should yours learn to play?
They say that music is the universal language.
Regardless of where you are from or what your
background, a good melody is something that
everyone can enjoy and understand. There must
be something behind that, right?
For children, music provides many, many
benefits. Experts agree, there are lots of good
things about letting your child learn to play an
instrument. Here are 10 reasons why your child
should put down the remote and pick up a
musical instrument.
1. IT WILL BOOST THEIR BRAIN POWER
Want to give your child a mental advantage?
Music can do that. "More and more studies show
a correlation between higher academic
achievement with children who are exposed to
music," says children's music specialist Meredith
LeVande of MonkeyMonkeyMusic.com. "Music
simply stimulates parts of the brain that are
related to reading, math, and emotional
development."
2. IT WILL IMPROVE THEIR MEMORY
Where did that shoe go? That's a question asked
far too many times in far too many households
with kids. Help your kids remember more (and
learn more!) with music. "Further research has
shown that participation in music at an early age
can help improve a child's learning ability and
memory by stimulating different patterns of brain
development," says Maestro Eduardo Marturet, a
conductor, composer and musical director for
the Miami Symphony Orchestra.
3. IT HELPS THEM SOCIALLY
Picking up an instrument can also help your child
break out of their social shell too, experts say.
"Socially, children who become involved in a
musical group or ensemble learn important life
skills, such as how to relate to others, how to
work as a team and appreciate the rewards that
come from working together, and the
development of leadership skills and discipline,"
says Marturet, who also oversees the MISO
Young Artist program in South Florida, which
allows young musicians to hone their musical
skills as part of a professional orchestra.
4. IT'S A CONFIDENCE BUILDER
Are there any areas of life that aren't enhanced by
having good confidence? Probably not. And if
you want your child to develop their confidence,
learning to play a musical instrument can help.
"They find that they can develop a skill by
themselves, that they can get better and better,"
says Elizabeth Dotson-Westphalen, a music
teacher and performer.
5. IT TEACHES PATIENCE
We live in a world of instant gratification, but real
life demands having patience. When you are
playing in a band or orchestra (and most
musicians do), you have to be willing to wait
your turn to play otherwise the sound is a mess.
That inadvertently teaches patience. "You need to
work together in a group to make music," says
Dotson-Westphalen.

The best trick for singing richly

it's so easy when this trick is made a priority. What do think makes the stars you hear sound so rich and perfect? Its this simple trick.
You might have tried singing and you probably feel discouraged because you don't like what you hear.

The truth is that everybody does trick but not everybody know it's tool.
Now you must be wondering what the trick is..........

.....THE TRICK is EQUILIBRIUM BREATHING........

Equilibrium breathing simply means finding that portion between the pressure from the abdmen(stomach) and the air in the lungs(chest) that produces tones without working up the larynx or vocal cords.
The definition might seem scary but the practical is simple. ......Time up.....

Stay tuned for tips on equilibrium breathing .

The Benefits of Meditation:
The benefits of meditation are manifold because it
can reverse your stress response, thereby
shielding you from the effects of chronic stress.
When practicing meditation, your heart rate and
breathing slow down, your blood pressure
normalizes, you use oxygen more efficiently, and
you sweat less. Your adrenal glands produce less
cortisol, your mind ages at a slower rate, and
your immune function improves. Your mind also
clears and your creativity increases. People who
meditate regularly find it easier to give up life-
damaging habits like smoking, drinking and
drugs. Meditation research is still new, but
promising.
How Meditation Works:
Meditation involves sitting in a relaxed position
and clearing your mind. You may focus on a
sound, like "ooommm," or on your own
breathing, or on nothing at all. It’s necessary to
have at least 5 to 20 distraction-free minutes to
spend. (Longer meditation sessions bring greater
benefits, but sometimes starting slowly can help
you maintain the practice long-term.) It’s helpful
to have silence and privacy, but more practiced
meditators can practice medtation anywhere.
Many practitioners of meditation attach a spiritual
component to it, but it can also be a secular
exercise.
Pros Of Meditation:
Meditation is wonderful in that it’s free, always
available, and amazingly effective in short-term
stress reduction and long-term health. Benefits
can be felt in just one session. An experienced
teacher can be helpful, but isn't absolutely
necessary; you can learn many effective
meditation techniques from a book or from the
meditation resources on this site.
The Cons of Meditation:
It does take some practice, however, and some
people find it difficult to "get it" in the beginning. It
also requires a little patience, and may be difficult
for people with little free time (like some stay-at-
home mothers who get little privacy from small
children). However, the time and effort it takes to
learn and practice is well worth it in terms of the
benefits it provides.
How Does It Compare To Other Stress
Reduction Methods?:
Unlike some medications and herbal therapies,
meditation has no potential side effects. People
with physical limitations may find it easier to
practice than strenuous physical exercise for
stress relief, plus, no special equipment is
required. Unlike enlisting the help of a
professional, meditation is free. However, it does
take discipline and commitment, so some people
may find it more difficult to maintain as a habit
than methods that enlist the help of someone or
something outside themselves for added
motivation. Also, some people may find it more
difficult to free their minds of the thoughts of the
day, and thus find it more difficult than methods
like journaling that involve focusing on these
events, or methods that in themselves are
distracting, like physical exercise or the use of
humor.

Brain Waves: Research has shown that
music with a strong beat can stimulate
brainwaves to resonate in sync with the beat,
with faster beats bringing sharper
concentration and more alert thinking, and a
slower tempo promoting a calm, meditative
state. Also, research has found that the change
in brainwave activity levels that music can
bring can also enable the brain to shift speeds
more easily on its own as needed, which
means that music can bring lasting benefits to
your state of mind, even after you’ve stopped
listening.
Breathing and Heart Rate: With alterations in
brainwaves comes changes in other bodily
functions. Those governed by the autonomic
nervous system, such as breathing and heart
rate can also be altered by the changes music
can bring. This can mean slower breathing,
slower heart rate, and an activation of the
relaxation response, among other things. This
is why music and music therapy can help
counteract or prevent the damaging effects of
chronic stress, greatly promoting not only
relaxation, but health.
State of Mind: Music can also be used to
bring a more positive state of mind, helping to
keep depression and anxiety at bay. This can
help prevent the stress response from
wreaking havoc on the body, and can help
keep creativity and optimism levels higher,
bringing many other benefits.
Other Benefits: Music has also been found to
bring many other benefits, such as lowering
blood pressure (which can also reduce the risk
of stroke and other health problems over time)
, boost immunity, ease muscle tension, and
more. With so many benefits and such
profound physical effects, it’s no surprise that
so many are seeing music as an important tool
to help the body in staying (or becoming)
healthy.

Music: The greatest invention

Music and Medicine

Opposite and antagonistic. How cn someone combine both and still be balanced? For they are two opposing forces that can tear a man into 2 unequal halves.
Music i say is superior and so beautiful.
Medicine is static but music is dynamic.
Medicine is all about discoveries while music is about inventions of sweet melodies!
I LOVE MUSIC
