The Use of Music to Facilitate Learning in a Class of Multihandicapped Cerebral Palsy Preschool Children
A number of years ago, I had been a volunteer in a Mental Institution where I was asked to give some piano lessons to a middle-aged woman, who had not spoken for 15 years and had forgotten her name. She liked to go to church, so I chose short 4 part Bach chorals for her to practice. While working with her I tried to analyze it a little by playing the various voices separately and by pointing out the intricacies of each voice - yet fitting together. After a few weeks the woman in charge told me that my pupil had begun to speak again and remembered her name.
