Are Musicians Really Neuroscientists?
The more I read, the more I know I’m right. The more I experience with my wellness program, the more I see weekly the effects music has on people. As I play my violin for disabilities in the therapeutic riding arena, a magical gateway is opened. The client becomes pliable — a necessity for change to occur.
I think musicians know instinctively that their abilities can reach areas in the brain that are not completely understood. We are all instinctive neuroscientists, ever striving to play that perfect phrase, to find the perfect color that will go straight to the soul of the listener.
It goes to the soul of the performer too.
