You know the old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” More and more research supports this ancient wisdom.
That’s why we have created MUSIC AS BRAIN FOOD, a program dedicated to promoting the health of your brain (and with it, your mind, body and spirit) through music.
HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
- Each session is on a separate topic. We have planned a variety of 75 minute teleseminars you can participate in by phone from the comfort of your own home.
- In each session we will introduce you to stimulating information and activities around music. The group interaction we encourage adds special energy to this experience, whether you attend in person or can only listen to the recording.
- We will guide you to listen to music so that your brain is challenged to stretch and grow. Continually expanding your horizons helps develop neuroplasticity, a major contributor to brain health.
- We will lead you through exercises which spark the mind-body-spirit connections so crucial to a high quality of life at any age.
- We will show you how listening to the right music consciously, with intention, can boost the inner strengths that foster authentic happiness.
- We will help you develop a personal Mindful Musical practice that can easily fit into your daily life and continuously nourish your total well-being.

First Session Information:
The good news these days is that we now know our brains don’t have to deteriorate as we grow older.
But the realistic news is that we need to call on curiosity and other personal strengths to to keep our dendrites growing and synapses firing.
Amazingly, there are longitudinal studies of people whose brains, after death, were found to to show signs of Alzheimer’s Disease even though they didn’t manifest cognitive decline even in old age. This is most probably because they were able to call on extra cognitive reserves for protection.**
The possibility that exercising your mind, body and spirit as a whole can delay the onset of brain diseases is reason enough to make the effort. Using music is one of the easiest and most natural ways to do just that.
Our first session explores the topic of the aging brain (aging starts earlier in life than you might imagine) by bringing you relevant music and activities that incorporate the good news about aging.
**See E. Goldberg, The New Executive Brain (Oxford U. Press, 2009). Dr. Goldberg advocates activating many different parts of the brain through a “balanced workout.”
