What else can help to relax and threw all the problems out of your heads? So, of course there are no doubts, at least for me, that music has a positive influence on our mental health. I can say for sure that my own children will listen to classics since they’ll born.

I think it’s amazing that it’s still regularly performed.

Comment on Music and Mental Health by California piano teacher http://donrathjr.com/music-mental-health/#comment-691 Wed, 27 Jul 2011 21:07:20 +0000 http://donrathjr.com/?p=6368#comment-691 Nice post!! I definitely think that music can help with mental health issues. As a pianist, music has been therapeutic in rough times. When I was going through a rough patch of my life, I would play through the Chopin Nocturnes one by one on the piano, because for some reason the mood of the music fit exactly how I was feeling at the time. I would highly encourage people to learn music to help with mental health.

Comment on Tempo – Speed in Music by Don Rath Jr http://donrathjr.com/speed-music-tempo/#comment-5 Fri, 29 Jan 2010 04:59:17 +0000 http://donrathjr.com/?p=1397#comment-5 Hi Laura,

Thanks for your comment! Metaphors are an excellent way to learn especially new concepts or those that are confusing when taught in other ways. Your example is a good one too and this lets me know you understand. Wonderful!
Thanks again! 🙂

Comment on Tempo – Speed in Music by Laura Sheman http://donrathjr.com/speed-music-tempo/#comment-4 Fri, 29 Jan 2010 00:36:02 +0000 http://donrathjr.com/?p=1397#comment-4 Wow, what a wonderful explanation of the various definitions of music. This is an area that I don’t know a lot about. For me it is very helpful to relate it to other things (like a speed limit) in life.

I wonder what other metaphors you can use. Water running through a pipe seems to be another example. You can have different sizes of pipes (which might relate to time signature) vs flow rate, which would be tempo.

I also love your discussion of Tempo marks! One hears these terms a lot, without understanding them fully.

Thank you!
