Why Music Matters – Dr. Jack Stamp

Friday 27 November, 2009

Dr. Jack Stamp is Professor of Music at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania‘s College of Fine Arts. In the audio clip above he speaks of how music, particularly playing in a band, gives us what no other area can… “technical perfection” and “emotion”. He also speaks of why 95% can be an “A” in one subject area, but a “Fail” in music. Hope you enjoy!

Here is an awesome clip of some piano stairs in a Swedish train station. I think it is a fantastic way to promote commuter interaction and add some fun to the ordinary and mundane activity of going to and from work or school.

From the creators: “We believe that the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better is by making it fun to do. We call it The fun theory”

I hope you enjoy the clip as much as I did!
