I just bought Rumors, and others of that era because they bring back wonderful memories.  How well I remember listing to Jefferson Airplane, “Leaving on a Jet Plan”, as I was actually taxying and lifting off the ground from the San Francisco Airport.  I also remember listening to the Beatles, in my headphones, and discovering how they used their expertise to make the music go from one ear to the other.  They were really brilliant musicians.Online musicYep, you got it, I’m an old hippie.  I lived in San Francisco and Marin County during that wonderful time in music history. So now I can just go to this site and find any music that I missed or that I lost when I moved to Hawaii.  Yeah, I lived there to.

Did you know that Music is used as Therapy?

My interest, because I’m a retired Special Education Teacher is in Music therapy. This is used with individuals of all ages.  They would have a variety of conditions, including: psychiatric disorders, medical problems, physical disabilities, sensory impairments, developmental disabilities, substance abuse issues, communication disorders, interpersonal problems, and aging.  All of these conditions are found  in a Special Education classroom.

It is also used to improve learning, build self-esteem, reduce stress, and  support physical exercise,  I learned to dance as a way of building my core muscles strength and used Salsa basic dance steps as my first dance.  I find that my balance, even 20 years later, is excellent.

Listening to different types of music has long been used to help people deal with their emotions. In the 17th century, the scholar Robert Burton’s The Anatomy of Melancholy, argued that music and dance were critical in treating mental illness, especially melancholia. He noted that it has an “excellent power …to expel many other diseases” and he called it “a sovereign remedy against despair and melancholy.”  In November 2006, Dr. Michael J. Crawford and his colleagues, found that music therapy also helped schizophrenic patients.

Music Used as a Learning Tool

The Russians used Baroque music to help students retain information.  I wrote a paper on it in college that I titled “Super Learning”.  And I used it to help students in spelling.  The teacher has to speak the letters in cadence with the music, so it takes some preparation time.  But, my students quite often won spelling bees.  And, they enjoyed the learning rather than being bored.

Music is also utilized to improve your ability to relax and sleep 

A review mentioned that music may be effective for improving  sleep quality in adults with insomnia symptoms.   I have studied up on insomnia also, and found that a regular book, soft music and low light in a room, except for your reading light, is very conducive to going to sleep in your chair.
