This just in from my friend Tom K. “I stopped in to visit my friend who had a stroke. He could speak some words but with great effort. His father was in the room and said, “would you like to hear a duet?” I said sure. To my amazement my friend’s words as he sang were clear. His dad told me the left brain controls speech but the right side is where the music comes from and that side of the brain is not affected. This was very touching and a testament to the beauty and power of music” As an educator, I am encouraging our mutual friend Jay to play the drum, sing make his MUSIC. Music effects all parts of the brain and MAGIC can happen when we PLAY! PLAYING is not just for kids. Playing is an important part of life for us at any time!
