CONWAY — The second lecture in a four-part series on music and the mind, presented by Mountain Top Music Center, will be Monday, Feb. 25, at 6:30 p.m. at the Brown Church in Conway Village. Presenter Julia Hendrickson, while continuing to focus on the development of the young mind, will again stimulate discussion on how music enhances not just our lives, but how our brain physically develops.
In her previous lecture, Hendrickson helped us understand the different stages of cognitive development by using demonstrations, YouTube videos, hand-outs and challenging questions. Once again, audience members are encouraged to add to this vibrant topic by bringing their own questions and life experience to the discussion.
Julia Hendrickson is a life-long practicing musician who lives in Silver Lake and teaches both flute and piano throughout the area. Hendrickson attended the New England Conservatory of Music for one year, then received her bachelor's of arts in both music and developmental psychology from Tufts University, followed a year later by a master's degree in education and child development also from Tufts.
