Music can play a large role in our day-to-day lives – and often it’s in ways that we don’t really think about. Have you ever wondered why, back in grade school, lessons were taught with songs to make long lists of facts or names easier to remember? Like the alphabet song or maybe the list of the States. Songs and rhymes are often used in teaching because they stick. Additionally, according to research, songs can become strongly associated with an experience or important memory, triggering vivid recall whenever they are heard. How cool is that?
