Accelerated Learning is Music to Our Ears

Sound Learning Involves Music

Chris Brewer founder of LifeSounds provides a Brief History of Music related to Learning http://www.musicandlearning.com/articles_ltssl.cfm. Focusing first on Accelerated Learning, based on Georgi Lozanov's work, Chris cites many benefits for using music to enhance learning. It creates positive learning states, builds anticipation, increases attention, enhances imagination, develops rapport, build motivation, releases tension, improves memory, and is fun. Chris provides an Annotated Music Bibliography in her article. Long considered a leader in the field of Music and Learning, Chris Brewer is one of the most qualified experts to sing its praises.
