Summary
Peter Perret, conductor of the Winston-Salem Symphony, chronicles how a brief NPR feature about music and the brain inspired him to create an innovative music education program for first- through third-graders. A Well-tempered Mind describes how children and musicians worked together and explores the brain research that seeks to understand how music engages the brain's cognitive capabilities. Perret's engaging narrative opens the door to new and exciting opportunities for education, demonstrating how music can be a universal language that expands young minds in unforeseen ways
