This is Your Child’s Brain on Music

The Alexander Technique with Paige McKinney

Young violinist“…lead researcher Sylvain Moreno…found that music training enhanced the children’s “executive function”—that is, their brains’ ability to plan, organize, strategize and solve problems. And he found the effect in 90% of the children, an unusually high rate.”

Perhaps you already believe that music training changes the brain for the better. There are lots of reasons to check out this article from the Wall Street Journal.

Have a safe and healthy fourth of July! May it be full of family , friends, good food , parades and fireworks!  We Love You!

Proud to Be an American


I just love a great Fourth of July Parade and Fireworks.  Such an interactive event and the people happily waiting for what’s to come next!  The children with their pinwheels and sparklers flying around. Can you see the floats swaying in the air?  The firecrackers going off in the background.  The gun solutes that are fired to keep us on track of what the 4th of July is all about.  Our freedom with the Declaration of Independence! And as the children love free balloons and candy let us partake as happy giver of smiles by these great candy treats.  Seeing someone smile whether young or old is simply worth something not left to the parade clowns because just simply ask yourself how would you feel handing out a few simple treats that brings hundreds of smiles in one day.  I call it priceless!  So grab a pack or two and be the happiness promoter and let “FREEDOM AND SMILES RING” on this Independence Day! Happy Fourth of July 2014

And don’t forget the great barbeques that……..  please read more and see more on my Squidoo Page!
