Music effects the body/mind, and the body/mind of the player affects the playing of his or her music. In her newest book, Laurie discusses our cultural relationship with music, how the brain learns it, how we practice it, how we perform it, how we listen to it, how we teach it, and finally, how it is used in purposely therapeutic ways. This book is for everyone who cares to explore aspects of music which have been taken for granted in the past, and also those which must be defined and studied for the future.
