Season 1 Episode 4; Guest speaker - Sofia Livotov (piano and voice teacher at KOVA ED - https://www.kovaed.com/about/; https://www.sofialivotov.com/).

In this episode, Sofia and I talk about the process of ageing and without being too optimistic we share how piano lessons can be beneficial to an ageing brain. Some things we say are backed by scientific research studies and some are brought to you from professional experiences of working with elderly learners.
