I am very interested in the field of brain friedly/accelerated learning 
techniques and use a number of approaches in designing the training which I 
carry out for staff in the University where I work.  I am very keen to 
understand what the current thinking is with respect to the impact of music on 
learning.  From your archives I saw references to the Mozart effect and the 
debunking of that theory.  I therefore want to know what the current view is of 
the potential for music to impact on an individual's ability to learn, both in 
terms of short and long term memory.  Thanks for your help.
