Question of the Month:
Which Beatles band member learned to play the Sitar?
Answer: George Harrison
"The musician is constantly adjusting decisions on tempo, tone, style, rhythm,
phrasing, and feeling - training the brain to become incredibly good at organizing
and conducting numerous activities at once. Dedicated practice of this
orchestration can have a great payoff for lifelong attentional skills, intelligence,
and an ability for self-knowledge and expression." - Ratey, John J. M.D.
