Perhaps you've read about those studies that suggest listening to classical music makes you smarter. Maybe it does and maybe it doesn't. But as Guest Commentator Mark Foley points out, there's much more value to music than whether it has the ability to boost your I.Q.
Guest Commentator Mark Foley is a professor of bass and director of Jazz Studies at the Wichita State University School of Music. He also plays bass for the Wichita Symphony Orchestra. This commentary originally aired on KMUW, Wichita's public radio station and we thank them for letting us steal it!
Production assistance for this commentary was provided by KMUW's Fletcher Powell.
