Wired For Music

Music exists within us all.  You don’t have to play cello in the symphony, sing tenor in the choir, or shred a mean guitar in a metal band in order to find it.

The ability to understand and express ourselves through music is as intrinsic as our natural abilities to walk, speak and ride a bicycle.  Music is emotion in its purest form, yet more and more we are discovering the logical, scientific relevance it has in our everyday lives.  If you don’t believe me, then you should watch this short video from renowned vocalist and conductor Bobby McFerrin.  In this video, McFerrin cleverly utilizes the pentatonic scale to demonstrate the extent to which the human brain truly is wired for music.  If you are already a believer, well then, perhaps you will discover a new method of teaching music theory to your students.
