MTNA Conference: Tuesday Session; Movement Pathways in the Brain: From Sound to Movement to Learning

Another presentation that I attended on Tuesday was by Lois Svard and Kay Hooper: Movement Pathways in the Brain: From Sound to Movement to Learning

While it was an interesting presentation, it was really one of those presentations that is hard to blog about. One of those, you really had to be here presentations… So I’m just going to share a few quotes that stood out to me.

 

“Music is about sound. When we connect sound and movement it results in moving.”

“Each time we repeat an action or connect an action, that pathway to the brain becomes stronger. Fired together- wired together. If we are practicing with mistakes or tension, that also gets wired.”

“We need to practice new information to create a new pathway. Then old pathways disconnect. Use it or lose it.”
