Learn why music can improve your mood, memory, and motivation – not to mention your work and life!

We can all think of at least one song that, when we hear it, triggers an emotional response. It might be a song that accompanied the first dance at your wedding or a song that reminds you of a difficult break-up or the loss of a loved one. We have such a deep connection to music because it is interconnected throughout our brain and body.

Given the deep connection we have with music, it is perhaps unsurprising that numerous studies have shown it can benefit our mental health, physical abilities, and our overall feelings of well-being.

The signature keynote, Tune In delivers inspiration and connection through science and story with the goal to shift your audience from stressed to soul-filled, from low-energy to purposeful, and from disconnected to deepening relationships.

All of Jennifer’s presentations include:

  • REAL AND INSPIRING STORIES
  • EVIDENCE AND ANALYSIS
  • STRATEGIES AND RESOURCES

Every presentation is customized for diverse audiences – education, healthcare, professional, front-line, and corporate.

President

JB Music Therapy

I have witnessed how music can stop babies from crying, and make great men start. I have seen it open doors to communication for someone unable to speak, and silence someone who normally has words for everything.

There are countless opportunities for music to make a difference. It can and does save healthcare dollars, but its effects go far deeper than its monetary value.

My mission is to help everyone understand what music is capable of doing when we allow ourselves to truly tune in to its potential.
