Summary
Peter Perret, conductor of the Winston-Salem Symphony, chronicles how a brief NPR feature about music and the brain inspired him to create an innovative music education program for first- through third-graders at two elementary schools in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. This book explores the research that seeks to understand how music engages the brain's cognitive capabilities ranging from memory and language and emotional processing
