I am a recognized* expert in music care -- the ability human beings have to influence their health based on the sounds or music we choose to hear. This ability is innate to all of us and can be used for mental, emotional and physical health care. Using sound and music as tools is not new; licensed and certified music therapists do so with great effect. So can YOU. If learning to give yourself a healthful, supportive experience of the music you hear is important to you, or learning how the music you use could make a difference to you professionally or personally, we need to talk.
The basic course in music care is six (6) hours long. In these six sessions you will learn:
• How Music Works on Us
• What do I Need Most? How do Needs and Feelings Relate?
• Music and Primary Emotions – your top 4 songs
• How to Find the Feeling in Music – your top 5 songs
• How to Use Your Music for Support
• How to Use Your Music for Transformation
Additional music care lessons sessions can take your abilities further. For example:
➢ Breath, Drumming and Song
➢ Trauma, Music and EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing)
➢ Suicide and Music

Distress hurts your ability to earn a living and all parts of your performance, enthusiasm and joy. If you are one of the 162 million Americans stressed out on the job, that’s an insight that you aren’t reaching your holistic full potential.
If you could release destructive stress and pump up every aspect of your performance, from physical endurance to mental and emotional readiness, could you be more satisfied, more productive, happier?
I'm an expert on how the music you love impacts and supports you, and working together you can learn how to sound track your life to support every aspect of your wellbeing — at work, at home, with friends — physically, mentally and emotionally.
Whether you are a business of one, a team player, a human resources manager of employee assistance programs, or sit in the C suite, you can unlock the potential you have…using music. You, your employer and your family will thank you.

I promise you a life-changing soundscape.
