Music Is Brain Food!

We’ve been reading a study which has found a positive impact between participation in music and brain development.

We think it’s kind of groovy!

Researchers at The University of Southern California (we think they know what they are doing!) carried out a four year study to investigate the effects of participation in music on child development.

Millie and Max tell us about Frère Jacques

  • Alt

Frère Jacques This rhyme is about a monk who possibly consumed too much mead the night before, and slept in – making him unable to do his job waking up the rest of the monks by ringing the morning bells.

Besides the more common French and English names, ‘Brother John’ is also known by a whole bunch of different names: in Afrikaans, he is ‘Vader Jakob’; ib Croatian, he is ‘Bratec Martin’; in Danish, he is ‘Mester Jakob’; in Dutch, he is ‘Broeder Jacob’; in Finnish, he is ‘Jaakko kulta’; in Hebrew, he is "אחינו הנהג"; and in Spanish, he is ‘Fray Santiago’.
