Summary

Rhythm in music is defined simply as the way in which music—as all music does—unfolds in time. Beyond music, there are many types of rhythms in our lives. There is rhythm in language, in brain activity and even attention has been found to have rhythm. Musical rhythm is closely associated with a variety of learning skills and with brain plasticity that underlies the acquisition of these skills. This panel of experts in music and neuroscience will explore what is known of the relationship between musical rhythm and learning. They will focus on rhythm and language, rhythm and cognition, and rhythm in culture, while also sharing resources and demonstrating DIY tools for music integration.
