Perhaps this ties into the "superlearning" theory (developed by Ostrander
and someone else who's name I've forgotten). Anyway, a basic premise is
that listening to classical music, especially baroque (Telemann is one
of the best), enhances learning because the beat of the music (approx.
one beat per second) harmonizes with your body's own rhythm. (I read
the book many years ago, so I'm paraphrasing.)
