BBBX – Auditory & Working Memory

Download and share here

This video is a great advocacy tool for explaining how music learning can develop auditory and working memory skills. Auditory memory helps us to remember things we have heard, retrieve those memories when we need to and working memory helps us temporarily remember and manage our memories throughout the day.

These videos are designed to focus on a single area of learning that music learning can enhance. We want to help parents, students and staff to better understand the impacts of music learning on brain development, so share these short videos through your social media feeds and emails.
