What does music have to do with happiness?
The simple answer is that music is part of our DNA. When we don’t make music, we are incomplete and unhappy.
The more complex answer is that music has power to connect us to our deepest selves, our greatest sense of purpose, and transcendent beauty.
Music is a democratic art, available to everyone. Even tone-deaf people love music. Even deaf people can feel the vibrations of music in the reverberations under their feet.
Think of human life without music. You can’t.
The awareness of music’s–and other arts’–central importance in our lives opens up many areas of possibility that we want to explore in these pages.

How can we use music to enhance our moods in more than temporary ways?
