Music for the Mind:
The Art & Music of Ostad Elahi

While the therapeutic benefits of music have long been explored, only recently have advances in neuroscience led to a better understanding of the profound effects of music on the brain. Ethnomusicologists, neuroscientists, and composers alike have begun to study the potential benefits of adapting certain kinds of music into auditory programs that can elevate mood and enhance cognitive states. Music for the Mind, a sound stimulation auditory training program set to the intricate music of Ostad Elahi, a virtuoso on the tanbour, is one such example that is based on the science of psychoacoustics. Learn how new discoveries about the power of music and the effects of active listening can help to induce profound changes in your life.
