There is a definite connection although I don’t know enough about the science behind it to explain or properly define the relationship. Mark Starlin, who is a musician and teacher, suggested singing lessons might help since they teach you how to listen in a particular way. For children, I think that might work. But, for older tone-deaf adults, I’m not sure, but it would be worth exploring if one is tone-deaf and must learn a new language.

Glad you enjoyed my piece. I worked on it for months — well, it sat in my drafts for months while not much was being done to it! Your piece inspired me to finish and post it.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
