Fox News had an interesting article on their website this week. It reported on how music can be extremely beneficial to children who were born prematurely.
Joanne Loewy, head of the Louis Armstrong Center for Music and Medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, said, “We are learning from the literature and studies like this that premature infants do not necessarily grow best tucked away in an incubator… Neurologic function can be enhanced with music; vital signs can be enhanced through interactive sounds and music therapy.”
It’s so refreshing to see that the healing powers of music are being researched by reputable institutions and reported on by the mainstream media. There is so much great research going on out there.
