ABOUT THE BOOK

Anyone who has blasted a beloved Motown classic at a party, pressed play on an energizing pop anthem mid-run, or nursed a broken heart to the strains of a sad ballad can attest to the deep transformative power of music.

 

From helping patients recover from brain injuries to soothing crying newborns, the neurological effects of music therapy have been studied extensively, and time and time again, science has shown: it works.

“A clearly written and touching book for people who do not know much about music but want to bring it into their lives. Blending personal stories, exercises, and musical therapy expertise, Tune In provides an effective roadmap for using music to increase health and well-being and to reduce stress and anxiety. The book splits its focus between recommending music as an integral part of everyday life and posing an argument for bringing music therapy into schools and institutions. Both are valid and beneficial viewpoints.”

“I found Tune In to be a gorgeous collection of thought-provoking and insightful stories that highlight the power of music in our lives. Whether we use music deliberately or on auto-pilot, we are deeply affected by the power of music and we can use this to our advantage to increase energy and boost mood! The book inspired me so much that after many years of saying I didn’t have the time, I was inspired to pick up my guitar and play a few songs.”
