"I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy, but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music and all the arts are the keys of learning ." - Plato. In Healing At The Speed Of Sound this quote begins Chapter 4, which focuses on sound and music in education. This chapter alone is enough to make me wish this book was required reading for every person that has any involvement in educating our children, whether it is parents, teachers, administrators, elected officials; at a time when the arts and are in jeopardy in so many schools, if they haven't already been eliminated. We are wasting so much potential right now, in a nation where too many seem to shrug off the failure of so many to even complete high school. There are non academic tools that can help these kids, and one of those that has the greatest potential to help so many kids is music.
I have not been reading this wonderful book in linear fashion, rather I began by skipping around, investigating some of the rich resources provided throughout. Last night I did go back to the beginning and then put on some beautiful, soothing music to go to sleep. I already knew how important this can be, but needed a reminder. I took some time this morning to just wake up and consciously allow some relative silence, as I enjoyed the happy snuffles of my dogs greeting me. It certainly put me in a great frame of mind to begin my day. The authors offer a tantalizing glimpse of how just a few changes in my daily routine can make an enormous change in my energy and attitude. They provide so many potential music resources too: I can see that I will be referring back to the book again and again as I build a better daily sound and music routine for myself. It delights me to think of how much fun I can have building my personal soundscapes too. The possibilities are limitless!
Each chapter is like unwrapping a present, as I not only read, but investigate the links. I downloaded the Kindle software for my laptop, and have it synced with my Kindle. I can directly access the links in each chapter as I am reading on the laptop, which really enriches the experience of reading it so much more! If I had the enhanced e-book version I could use that, and could access the links directly from my iPad or Nook or one of the new Kindles coming perhaps, but for now am really enjoying this experience!
I'm rating 4 instead of 5 stars because there were a few areas in which I feel issues were over-simplified and could have been dealt with better. Overall very good though.
