Music refines the taste, purifies the heart,
    and elevates our nature.
    It does more:
    it soothes in sorrow, tranquillizes in passion,
    and wears away the irritabilities of life.
    It intensifies love,
    it fires the patriotism,
    and makes the altar of our devotion burn
    with a purer, holier flame.

    --W.W. Hall, M.D., Hall's Journal of Health for 1862.


    The greatest benefits from therapy -
    cognitive, emotional and social -
    come from effortful engagement with music.

    --William Forde Thompson and Gottfried Schlaug,
    Scientific American Mind (March-April 2015)
