As Artistic Director of the MNjcc Suzuki Program for the past 18 years, and newly named coordinator of the MNjcc Music Dept., I am immersed daily in organizing, administering, teaching and thinking about music, and view it as a life balancer for everyone. For the very smallest learners, much has been studied, many books and articles have been published emphasizing the beneficial effects of learning music for the development of the brain. Similarly, for adult learners, studies indicate learning a new musical skill, and/or reacquainting oneself with music is no less stimulating for the brain and nervous system than for a younger person. Simply said ... Music is good for your mental and physical heath! What a wonderful thing to contemplate when declaring your new year’s resolution!
