Why We Remember Music
What makes a piece of music move you emotionally and spiritually and stick with you for life? What makes a song a sing-along or a toe-tapper? What makes a melody timeless? Come find out how a great piece of music moves you and why it can evoke such vivid, powerful feelings and memories, even years after you first hear it. Designed for non-music teachers, but music teachers are welcome too. This is for inspiration, not hands-on classroom application -- but you'll like it! :-)
