WHAT DOES MUSIC GIVE TO YOU?

Choosing the subject and how learning is always a subject of much debate in each family. Many programs for children and sports activities such as football, volleyball, swimming .. all aim to develop children. But we forget about what makes a child's soul, that is music. You have difficulty in how your child can grow healthy, active, have reason and deep thinking as scientists around the world. How to write meaningful words when children do not know how to hold the pen. That's why experts encourage parents let to listening to music while the babe in the womb. Finger power and ingenuity are the first steps for a child to access the music by touching, hearing, making children think logically, knowingly organizing the music, making music a child. Romantic, meticulous but still very strong in everything. Parents' time is not enough to be able to do the same things with their children, music is the most effective medicine so that babies can be easily absorbed and socialized. .

Piano Music for Studying, Concentrating

This is the ultimate study music playlist for concentrating, focusing, and thinking. This is a collection of almost all the piano music for studying to help concentration and focus I have written so far. The playlist include study music that I have composed since 2010-2014. This is 4 years in the making. As many of you know, I have also been in medical school for the last 4 years as well. Thus, as I listen to this playlist, I see my experiences, studies, cramming time, tests and exam anxieties, all-nighters, etc. all flash before my eyes. For those of you who have been following me through this journey and have kept up with this channel, I would love to hear stories of what these pieces trigger in your memories.
