Default Learning through one's "zone of proximal development"

It's about learning to play music, but I think it's relevant to anything skilled, motor-wise, like manual handling. And I should think the cognitive evaluative zone needs to be fed simultaneously or it will fill up its hunger with nonsense.

Default learning

Diane , a friend sent a similar link . Fascinating esp the studies with owls . I think this article and optimism is so relevant for re learning and promoting the idea of neuroplasticity.
Learning music is transformative and I would recommend it to anyone . The comment on your link is the usual one of not being possible to be a virtuoso --who cares, the message is that change enjoyment and developing a meaningful life is.

Great article,

And so relevent to changing brains and pain. Go slowly, take care, pay attention and gently push yourself.
