"The artistic and aesthetic aspects of learning to play a musical instrument are different from any other activity studied, including other arts."

HAH. Eff you, painters!!!


Music is mathematics. There is the obvious rhythm and time aspects, halves, quarters, eighths etc.

Then you find out that an octave is a doubling in frequency, and a fifth interval is 1.5x frequency, and your mind is blown. Notes are our subconscious appreciation of math.

I have played guitars since I was ten. I'm 61. I'm dumber than a bag of hammers.

This book: This Is Your Brain on Music

Go read this book. Trust me on this.

Quote:
Levitin's fascination with the mystery of music and the study of why it affects us so deeply is at the heart of this book...
Quote:
...he discusses neurobiology, neuropsychology, cognitive psychology, empirical philosophy, Gestalt psychology, memory theory, categorization theory, neurochemistry, and exemplar theory in relation to music theory and history...
