Dec. 3, 2011: Saturday at 6pm. Solo and Chamber Music Recital in Newport News, VA.
As the advisor of the National Junior Honor Society at Jones Magnet Middle School, I had the pleasure of watching and listening to Dr. Madeline Frank speak to my students about "Music and the Brain." My students were fascinated by her brain research, especially the effect of music on the damaged brain and recovery for injured children. Dr, Frank played some beautiful music for my students, and they left the lecture talking about the way Mozart and other classical music stimulates the brain.

She is highly motivated, well-versed and prepared, and caring not only for her students, but also the organization for which she works. Dr. Frank has the ability to inculcate in her students an understanding and appreciation for the subject being taught. She has demonstrated a quality of innovation by developing special topic courses in music which have been incorporated into the Fine Arts curriculum.
