The evidence is in: music is not just entertainment - it is medicine. Sub-titled Using the Power of Music to Heal the Body, Strengthen the Mind and Unlock the Creative Spirit, this book unifies medicine, Eastern wisdom and the new science of sonic healing. The Mozart Effect offers dramatic accounts of how doctors and others use music to deal with everything from anxiety to cancer, high blood pressure, chronic pain, and even mental illness. For example, the director of a Baltimore hospital's coronary care unit found that half an hour of classical music produces the same effect as 10 milligrams of Valium. And students who sing or play an instrument score up to 51 points higher on SATs than the national average. Drawing on the personal experiences and uplifting stories of ordinary men and women. Campbell shows us how to put the healing power of music into action. And he recommends specific, easy-to-follow exercises to help you raise your spatial IQ, sound away pain, boost creativity, and make the spirit sing.

Review:

With a subtitle of Tapping the Power of Music to Heal the Body, Strengthen the Mind, and Unlock the Creative Spirit, the casual reader might jokingly ask if the book could also improve chances for world peace, bring free and open elections to third world countries, and give your wash whiter whites and brighter brights. Don Campbell's premise is, however, reasonably straightforward: he asserts that the kind of noise to which one is exposed can have important effects on mental and bodily health. As a trial, try protecting your hearing for a few days from the continuous barrage of noise in a typical urban environment; it really does seem to improve one's attitude and fatigue levels.

Where Campbell's ideas become more provocative is in the realm of music. Supported by much anecdotal evidence, he proposes that Classical music with a big "C" (the music of Mozart's period) can reach out to those who are mentally isolated from their fellows, like the autistic, and can help infants react and think better. (Will prenatal music classes be the next big trend for yuppie babies?) In addition, the music of Mozart contributes to the improved functioning of the higher cerebellar functions, including the ability to deal with logical and mathematical concepts, while contemporary rock actually decreases mental acuity.

About the Author:

Don Campbell founded the Institute for Music, Health, and Education in 1988. Known as the "godfather of sound", he frequently lectures at universities, music organizations, at Omega and Esalen and to health professionals. In April 1996, he was Conference Host for "Awakening the Soul", a three-day symposium with presentations by Robert Bly, Maya Angelou, and Matthew Fox. He trained as a classical musician at the Fontainebleau Conservatory of Music in France. He lives in Boulder, Colorado.
