You've Got a Hold on Me featuring Me'shell Ndegeocello and
Lead Background Vocalist CARLA BENSON

TO MY CHILDREN,

I so completely believe in you. I KNOW that within you lies the solutions to the legacy adults have left you.

I KNOW you possess greatness beyond our wildest imaginations. The adults have not given you a perfect world, but they also bequeath to you the tools to overcome, reverse and correct these problems.

I offer my arms to hug you, my heart to accept you right where you are, and my head to challenge you to be better than the adults who have disappointed you in the past.

REMEMBER: EDUCATION IS THE KEY. KNOWLEDGE IS ALWAYS THE WAY.

If you are not being challenged where you are, if the challenges coming to you are unfair or unwarranted, then please slow down, take a moment, and recognize that in your discomfort is an invitation to grow.

Find it. Find yourself. We are all challenged. I KNOW you can meet and conquer that which is before you. I can help you.

peace,

Carla L. Benson

Children who have musical training also have significantly better verbal memory than children who don't, and the difference increases the longer they study?
DID YOU KNOW?

Music training during childhood contributes to the reorganization and increased development of the [4]brain's left temporal lobes in musicians. After administering verbal memory tests that calculated the number of words children could recall from a list, and a comparable visual memory test for images, the researchers found that students with musical training had better verbal memory. Musically trained students retained more words even after a 30 minute delay. Even though having fewer than six years of musical training can boost verbal memory, the researchers say that more training boosts cortical reorganization in the left temporal region and improves the ability to handle other functions such as verbal learning. And the benefits of musical training appear to be long-lasting. Students who dropped out of the advanced training group were tested after a year and found to retain the verbal memory advantage they had gained earlier Source
