Thanks Melanie.

It's great to hear how you're using music.
You also remind me that I didn't get into other ways in which classical music can positively affect us, including thinking and also both physical and emotional healing.

Classical for the Soundtrack of Your Teaching

I so completely agree with you. Music everywhere, especially classical. I taught students of every level of Special and Regular Ed. They ALL loved classical music either as a subject or in the background. Beethoven was a consistent favorite, especially the Pastoral. I told them we would take a walk with Ludwig. But science tells us even adults improve their thinking skills with classical music; and this music is so accessible. What a wonderful time to be teach.
