Whole Brain Activity

Rhythm is a whole-brain-activity:

When you practise rhythm you will inevitably combine language and movement in one way or another. (e.g. : ta ke di me ; bum tschak bumbum tschak)

Language is situated in brain´s left hemisphere – movement is in the right hemisphere.

To achieve a flowing, rhythmical groove there needs to be excellent cooperation between the two hemispheres.

So rhythm is a fantastic method of promoting communication between the two hemispheres of the brain. Practising whole brain learning facilitates learning of all kinds.
