by Assal Habibi  Observing a pianist at a recital – converting musical notations into precisely timed finger movements on a piano – can be a powerful emotional experience. As a researcher of neuroscience and a pianist myself, I understand that the mastering of this skill not only takes practice, but also requires complex coordination of many different brain regions.

Meet the Detroit Dads Who Balance Dad-Life with Pub Rock

A group of dads from Detroit have formed a next-level dad band that doesn’t suck. Oakland Press -- the only media so far to cover the band’s unique context and history -- recounted the dad rockers' rise. Self-described as New Americana, the six-piece ensemble called Midnight Proof formed out of garage jam sessions. Casual Beginnings Lead singer Charlie Sunne told OP that they started playing as a cover band, with ‘rotating ...
