The Evolution of the Book - Julie Dreyfuss



What makes a book a book? Is it just anything that stores and communicates information? Or does it have to do with paper, binding, font, ink, its weight in your hands, the smell of the pages? To answer these questions, Julie Dreyfuss goes back to the start of the book as we know it to show how these elements came together to make something more than the sum of their parts.

There Are Many Benefits to Learning an Instrument


There are so many advantages to learning to play an instrument. The benefits are many, and can carry many years into your life. Whether young or old, it is a worthwhile investment of our time to undertake the fun task of learning to play.

First of all, the research shows that exposing children to music, and music training, can improve a childs' reading age, their IQ, and it affects the development of certain areas of the brain. Adults who learn and practice an instrument, are helping their minds to stay alert and focused. And there is evidence that it helps the memory.

Those who practice an instrument are teaching themselves to be disciplined as well. For you must set aside time to work on your new skills, which can be rewarding and fun in itself. And self-discipline is an area every person can use improvement in. And carries into every other area of our lives. Music can be a great way to relieve stress. We have all had those days that our stress level is elevated, and the right song can soothe us, and help to relieve some stress. And there is something even better about hearing that music come from an instrument that you are playing.

There is a great sense of achievement in playing tunes on your own instrument. It may not happen overnight, but the dedication and work involved adds to the great feeling you get when that music comes to life by your own hands. Yes, it is hard work, but it is also a lot of fun. And it is very rewarding as well.
