3 Cognitive benefits of learning and playing our Feadog Whistle – part 3
by Joao Ferreira
After weeks at home due to the quarantine, it is time already to some of us come back to work and usual activities.
So, I consider it is the moment to talk about the benefits to play and show your performances of weeks of learning and practice.
I really hope after learning and practicing you share your performances through our Social Media.
So, I gathered these 3 special benefits:
1- Auditory Skills
Cross-sectional comparisons of musicians to non-musicians have established a variety of musician enhancements in auditory skills and their neural substrates. Extending from enhanced perception and neural encoding of speech. Most notably in suboptimal listening conditions, to more proficient auditory working memory and auditory attention..
2- Brainstem Responses
Adults who receive formal music instruction as children have more robust brainstem responses to sound than peers who never participate in music lessons. And that the magnitude of the response correlates with how recently training ceased. These results suggest that neural changes accompanying musical training during childhood are retained in adulthood.
Music therapy utilizing improvisation on hand drums helped veterans modulate their “often misdirected, exaggerated, and unrecognized emotions”. With the goal being generalization of these skills to everyday life.
It is always good to remind everyone to wash the hands and keep social distancing.
I believe after these 3 benefits, you will be inspired to learn how to play our Feadog Whistles better and better. So, browse our website and look for the one that suits you.
