For The Love Of Cello
A study published this month in the Journal of Neuroscience looks at free music programs aimed at at-risk kids, and finds that studying music improves performance in the human brain.
Youth Radio’s Scott Lau went through a similar program.
He’s now a freshman at the University of Southern California studying the music business and the cello.
He sent us this audio postcard about how playing the cello changed him.
