Sally Fletcher has written an interesting and easily read little book that explains some of the applications, theories and studies that relate to how music can influence our moods, minds and health. The book reads as if the reader were sitting in a room with the author discussing how music might be better utilized in life. Sure we've always known music is fun but did you know that the type of music you listen to can help you learn? heal? relax?
The facts and figures in the book are pulled together with experience and history which keeps the book from reading like a lecture. The author has also broken the subject into thirteen sections and added musical quotes which helps with readability. After reading the book, there were a ton of musical experiments I wanted to try at home. I was motivated and enlightened by the content of Ms Fletcher's book.
If you are not fond of a litany of study results, you might want to skip reading 'Music: Healing and Harmony' (I happen to love study results) But that's about all the negative I can come up with. If this subject interests you at all, you should find this book interesting, readable and short enough to hold your attention.
I particularly liked the many quotes scattered throughout the book, like this one: "Many say that life entered the human body by the help of music, but the truth is that life itself is music." --Hafiz
Highly recommended, even if you don't think you're interested in music, you'll learn a lot.
that it will increase your enjoyment of music in general.
