Thanks, Ray for your post.

Ray's following message sounded so interesting, I went to the Newsweek
website to see if I could find the story, and I did. For others, who may
be interested, you can go to http://www.msnbc.com/news/433442.asp#BODY to
read the full text of Music on the Mind by Sharon Begley. At the site you
also can click on an audio interview with Begley and listen to a
9,000-yer-old Chinese bone flute. ;->

Please respond to

Page 50 of the July 24 issue of Newsweek has an article on music, the mind,
and math.

"This year, Shaw reported that music can help bridge a socioeconomic gap.
He compared second graders in inner-city Los Angeles to forth and fifth
graders in more affluent Orange County, Calif. After a year of piano, the
second graders who received twice-a-week piano training in school scored as
well as the forth graders who did not; half of the {LA} second graders
scored as well as {the Orange County} fifth graders."

The report has additional details.
