“This October Knopf will release Taking Flight: From War Orphan to Star Ballerina, a YA memoir co-authored by Michaela and her mother, Elaine DePrince, tracing Michaela’s journey from a life of war and poverty in Africa to renown as a classical ballerina. While the book’s subtitle gives the story a magical aura, the dancer is firm in her assertion that “people think my life is a fairy tale, but it’s far from it.” She and her mother wrote the book to chronicle the hard work, perseverance, dedication and family support that it takes to pursue a dream.”
— "From African Orphanage to the International Stage: A Dancer Recounts Her Journey" by Krystyna Poray Goddu (Publishers Weekly)

Musical training doesn’t just improve your ear for music, it also helps your ear for speech. That’s the takeaway from an unusual new study published in The Journal of Neuroscience. Researchers found that kids who took music lessons for two years didn’t just get better at playing the trombone or violin. They found that playing music also helped kids’ brains process language.
