Your Mind on Music: Muffins, Magic, Mozart, Myth

  • Jean Emmerson University of Saskatchewan


This article begins with questions that arose during my experiences as a young musician touring with a band. I explore answers to these questions through examining the difference between the mind and the brain and describing selected research on the effects of music on the brain. I then review the literature on the presence and power of music in adolescent and young adult life. Lastly, I apply these findings to learning.
