Jan here. One of my pet peeves is the expression "You can't teach an old dog new tricks." Phooey. That's just a lame excuse to get out learning a new skill, and it doesn't hold water.
AMC Music News reported that since music involves all aspects of learning (memory, recognition, emotion, motor control, and perception), music education can work to stimulate brain nerve resources that might otherwise be left untapped.
The brain is a muscle that can be exercised, and playing music is the most fun to do so!
Do you agree? Why or why not?
