BBBX – Decision Making

Welcome to our newest release, the BBB Explained video series.

The next video in our series is on Decision Making. This video is a great advocacy tool for explaining how music learning can develop decision making skills.

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.
