“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.
