In the last few decades, neuroscientists have made enormous breakthroughs in understanding how our brains work, by monitoring them with instruments like fMRI. Through brain scans we have found that musicians have different brains than non-musicians. People who play an instrument have bigger, better connected, more sensitive brains.

In the last few decades, neuroscientists have made enormous breakthroughs in understanding how our brains work, by monitoring them with instruments like fMRI. Through brain scans we have found that musicians have different brains than non-musicians. People who play an instrument have bigger, better connected, more sensitive brains.

It’s also never too late to start learning an instrument. Seniors who play an instrument or sing with other people are more resistant to cognitive and memory problems.

So both listening and creating music has it's own benefits.

There are etudes from every musical period. Their purpose is to help the student drill and learn a particular technique. As a result, they tend to be repetitive. Some composers, such as Liszt and Chopin, wrote etudes of such complexity and beauty that they are performed in concerts.

This is a lesson for beginners explaining how to improvise using the blues scale. It can be used over anything including the 12 bar blues, funk and jazz (providing the key doesn't change).

Ravel was clearly a precious, tidy little man who loved and demanded silence and privacy. He lived through his music. I am distressed that people who entered his space might pocket something. It is not forgivable. I appreciate that the house even still exists! Why don't people put gloves on to open old books and handle manuscripts? All said, thank you for the tour.

The primary difference between Mozart and Beethoven was that Mozart's music represents the end of an era: the pristine perfectionism of the Classical aesthetic. Whereas Beethoven's music represents the beginning of an era: the raw passion of Romanticism, and ultimately Impressionism and 20th century atonal harmony.
