AMUS 633 Neuroscience and Musical Development: Practical Implication

3 credits 42 hours
600 level continuing studies course

Rigorous investigation of the brain is best left to neuroscientists. However, it can be beneficial for music educators to come to a rudimentary understanding of learning- and music-specific brain processes. In addition to helping teachers advocate for the necessity of music in the curriculum, an overview of the intersection of neuroscience and learning supports efforts to meet the needs of all students at musical, social-emotional, and culturally-responsive levels. This course is applicable to all areas and levels of music education.

This course may be completed 2 times for credit.
