“Music rhythms are mathematical patterns. When you hear a song and your body starts moving with it, your body is doing math. The kids in their parents’ garage practicing to be a band may not realize it, but they’re also practicing math.”
– Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
* I’ve always believed this to be true, as a math student in college-turned musician. If you haven’t read Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s book yet What Color Is My World? I strongly recommend it.
