Music Sessions

Juniper class welcomed Gary and Louise  in class and had a jammin session with students choosing instruments to explore what sounds they liked. Research shows us that music is processed in many regions of the brain simultaneously. The Cognitive Neuroscience of Music shows that when making music, the sensory cortex, auditory cortex, hippocampus, visual cortex, cerebellum, amygdala, prefrontal cortex, and motor cortex are all firing at once.  How fantastic that music relates to the multi-sensory experience of making music because each of these sensory systems is tied into a specific part of the brain.
