What You'll Learn:
Whether you’re moved by Mozart, bound by Bob Dylan, or caught up in the lifts and dips of John Coltrane, music wraps you in an electrifying experience. There’s a reason why the Beatles’ song “Yesterday” sounds fresh nearly everyday and Paul Simon’s “Graceland” weaves a story from a handful of chords we call magic. One of humanity’s most universal experiences comes down to processes within the equally mystifying human brain. Uniquely qualified musician, neuroscientist, and Professor of Psychology Daniel Levitin composes a score of research to discover how music compels memory, stirs emotion, and strings seemingly disjointed lives into one seamless song.
