The purpose of these videos is to introduce the general public to the extraordinary works of the enlightened musicians of the past. There is a complexity, natural beauty, thoughtful reverence, divine inspiration, and deep human expressiveness found in many of the compositions by ‘Classical’ artists. Studies substantiate the notion that listening to certain complex, harmonically pleasing, and energetic music can stimulate neural regions that may be responsible for abstract spatial conceptualizing, problem solving, and creative idea genesis. This correlation phenomena is often referred to as the ‘Mozart Effect’. Though some studies have negated this concept, they have often used simple piano pieces and measured only the Western idea of Intelligence Quotient and not the neural excitation for other cognitive abilities. These other cognitive tendencies that are not defined in the parameters measured by I.Q. may promote better problem solving and adaptive behavioral patterns leading to life enrichment and a sense of well-being.

By integrating the music of the Great Masters into videos that resonate with popular culture I aim to reach a segment of society that is unfamiliar with the divine and passionate music of the past. I’m hoping some viewers will be inspired to further seek out the music of the ‘classical’ greats and supplement their musical playlists.

For those with a higher propensity for obsessive and compulsive thought patterns, particularly young adults, the complexity and beauty of certain ‘classical’ music has shown to have a soothing effect. This may help some young adults divert their obsessive thoughts from destructive and violent habits to more creative and constructive intentions. In addition to listening to certain complex music, other studies have shown that performing complex music on instruments greatly exercises multiple regions in the brain leading to cognitive enhancements. The piano, utilizing both hands and all fingers, is a great instrument to comprehensively stimulate neural regions in both hemispheres of the brain.

It is not my intention to diminish the esteemed music of the great musicians of the past by overlaying their works on pop culture activities, but rather to penetrate the popular market trends to Enhance Analytical Reasoning and Stimulate Creativity.

I also hope to inspire many in learning and playing the piano to cultivate their Creative and Artistic side.

Comprehensive research substantiates the correlation between the learning of a musical instrument and the enhanced development of cognitive abilities. Studies also indicate that musical expression contributes to positive psychological well-being by reducing stress and promoting self-esteem. Those who learn music at an early age have shown to benefit lifelong, having more success professionally and socially. And for those of us who start later, musical activity has proven to induce neuroplasticity, which promotes enhanced cognition and creativity. Additional research has shown that playing a musical instrument can slow cognitive decline and deter Alzheimer’s disease.

The piano / digital piano provides the most comprehensive learning of musical notation, and allows one to play entire songs with leading voice and accompaniment. With the active use of both hands, playing the piano stimulates both hemispheres of the brain and develops cognitive functions associated independently for each side. Furthermore, the dual hand usage strengthens the communication efficiency through the corpus callosum (the neural band that connects both hemispheres), permitting multi-modal analysis and projection. In short, efficient usage of both hemispheres allows for deep analytical reasoning and generative creativity. These are traits that may be helpful in navigating a quickly evolving and challenging world perpetuated by Artificial Intelligence, Automation and Robotics, and a misaligned malignant form for hyper-capitalism.
