MasonHi!  In an effort to be blogging more, because I like it, and we have a lot to share.  I am instituting WHAT’S UP WEDNESDAY?  Each Wednesday look for a Blog Post with some new kind of research based developmental information.  We share so many benefits about music with you – but why are those things really important?  You will find out way each Wednesday right here so stay tuned!
