St Philips College Page 6 Music News Weve had a great start to the year and timetables for Term 2 will be on their way this week please keep your eye out for this email. I do encourage you to print out the timetable and keep it somewhere visible so that it acts as a constant reminder as to when music tuition lessons are. Good news is that all students who have been on the waiting list have been allocated to a teacher and can begin lessons next Term. We also have some spaces available for voice (4), guitar (3) and strings (1). LESSONS START BACK IN WEEK ONE Music and Memory Connection As we all know from hearing that song associated with a first love or some other fond memory from our youth, music is profoundly linked to personal memories. In fact, our brains are hard-wired to connect music with long-term memory. Music can tap deep emotional recall. Beloved music has been shown to calm chaotic brain activity and enable the listener to focus on the present moment and regain a connection to others. This discovery has been especially helpful for people with dementia, Parkinsons and other diseases that damage brain chemistry. Music therapy has helped to reconnect people suffering from these diseases to the world and gain improved quality of life from listening to personal music favorites. So if you want to revisit your youth for a bit, put on your favourite songs from that time. http://musicandmemory. org/about/brain-music-connection/ MY BRAIN: 5% - names 3% - phone numbers 2% - stuff I should know for school 90% - song lyrics
