Neurochemicals at work in Carnegie Hall

I've spent the past week in NYC doing two major musical activities. On Tuesday night I heard my youngest sister conduct her orchestra in Carnegie Hall. It was a true peak experience and the positive neurochemicals such as serotonin and dopamine were surely flowing in abundance! My mother and another sister were there and we were just thrilled to see her conduct just likee pros! It was sooo awesome!

On Thursday morning, I spoke at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn. My topic was "The Importance of Music with Pregnancy, Preemies, and Newborns." The presentation was well-received and I thoroughly enjoyed giving it to the doctors and nurses there! We talked about the effect of music on the devleoping infant's brain and how very important it is to have high quality music for a pregnant Mom!

Questions anyone?
