Summary of “Music in Your Head”, by Eckart O. Altenmüller Of all the behaviors humans’ exhibit, the universal love of music is a puzzle to researchers. In spite of the fact that neither listening to nor making music meets a crucial life need, the human brain is able to process sounds in highly complex ways, apparently just for the pleasure of it. In the article “Music in Your Head”, Eckart O. Altenmüller talks about many things which have to deal with music and the brain. He starts from talking about visual and emotion experiences to the structures of the brain that are involved. Also some research is explained that was done to test which side of the brain is responsible for what emotions.

Bryan Asencio Ms. Mendoza English 101 #1302 October 13, 2012 Designer Babies Response In “Designer Babies” by Michael J. Sandel, Sandel makes many good points on genetic engineering, or eugenics. One really good point he made was that parents are using eugenics to give their children an advantage or competitive edge in life which he believed was morally okay. He supported this by saying that we praise parents who help better their children by taking them to music classes, putting them in sports, helping with homework so why shouldn't it be the same for parents who try to help their kids by giving them good genes by using eugenics (Sandel, 789). He counters that point with a point that I find the is the most convincing which is when he says that the thing that is wrong with eugenics is not only the coercion but also that it is basically trying to control or manipulate the genetics of our next generation (Sandel, 789). I completely agree with Sandel, trying to control what a whole generation looks like or what skills or attributes they have is wrong because it would be basically mass producing human to meet a certain criteria which is morally wrong.
Why Music Education Is Important When educational cuts are made, music and art are amongst the first subjects to go. Unfortunately, it means that parents, educators and even board members are overlooking each subject`s importance. Music education is more than just introducing students to beats, notes and songs. Instead, it completely transforms a child`s mind and opens up endless possibilities to their learning potential. One of the most notable studies on music and the brain, the Mozart Effect, began as a college research experiment.
(Lindeman and Hackett, p2) Despite this growth, many systems have not given their programs the ability to grow to their fullest potential. Simply stated: the presence of music in the school system, especially the elementary ages, will give the students a change to connect, ignite a spark and give them some sort of excitement and curiosity to explore the world of music. It is a significant contribution to the complete education of the student. (Hacket, pg. 4).

From the classical to the Neo-Soul, music will always have the sounds that project the world to you through tone and/or voice. Mastery of this discipline lies in the passion for your craft, using your skills to continue giving the world a feeling of reality, clarity, and the love for music. From an interdisciplinary stand point, music can relate to many other disciplines as well as creating a much deeper picture of its versatility through incorporating other subjects. Two disciplines that I want to fuse with the discipline of music are from the technological and artistic point of views. As n artist, you develop skills using colors and pictures expressing your thoughts and feelings through drawings and paintings.
