Anyone who has ever seen a two-year-old start bouncing to a beat knows that music speaks to us on a very deep level. But it took celebrated teacher and music visionary Don Campbell to show us just how deep, with his landmark book The Mozart Effect.

Stimulating, authoritative, and often lyrical, The Mozart Effect has a simple but life-changing message: music is medicine for the body, the mind, and the soul. Campbell shows how modern science has begun to confirm this ancient wisdom, finding evidence that listening to certain types of music can improve the quality of life in almost every respect. Here are dramatic accounts of how music is used to deal with everything from anxiety to cancer, high blood pressure, chronic pain, dyslexia, and even mental illness.

Always clear and compelling, Campbell recommends more than two dozen specific, easy-to-follow exercises to raise your spatial IQ, "sound away" pain, boost creativity, and make the spirit sing!

A Texas native, Don Campbell studied with Nadia Boulanger at the Fontainebleau Conservatory of Music in France and has worked with Jean Houston, Leonard Bernstein and other musicians, healers and mind/body researchers.

Over the years, his quest to harness the healing and creative powers of sound and music has taken him to 40 countries, including Haiti, Russia, Israel, Greece, Tibet, Indonesia and Thailand, where he has studied indigenous culture, taught and worked with children and young adults, and given his own performances. He has taught and performed in most of the capitals of Europe and lived in Japan for several years, serving as music critic for a Tokyo newspaper.

He founded the Institute of Music, Health and Education in 1988, and is known to the public through frequent television and radio appearances and international lecture tours. He lives in Boulder, Colorado.

Very informative, thoroughly researched !



Beautiful, informative ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT book!, …..  I  use the information that I learned in this book every single day. This changed the way that I live my life

WELL DOCUMENTED    The "recommended reading" section is seven pages long and lists several dozen books written by academics, scientists, medical doctors and therapists. The "resources" section is eleven pages long and lists active training and music therapy centers in Europe, Asia and North and South America. The "footnotes" section is twenty-two pages long. This is an entertaining and well written overview of the field of music therapy and would benefit any person interested in expanding human potential. I've been involved in music for twenty-four years including record and concert production and hosting a daily radio program. I've had the opportunity to come in direct contact with some of the world's greatest musicians and I feel certain most of them would find this book fascinating. I certainly did. I also received scientific training as an undergraduate at an Ivy League university (neuroscience at Princeton) and did not find this book deficient in any way.

Inspiring Book - Excellent source of inspiration and science of music ….  I have recommended this book to all - Here's a well written and inspired book that is honest in regard to the whole spectrum of music's power. Campbell is not afraid of inspiration, spirituality, research or the power of the spoken word. Most books on music take only one view. He has the courage to tell the world how music is experienced and perceived by many people. Perhaps the researchers could learn a few things from Campbell.......that not all people hear and process music in the same way. This book cuts new ground for the arts. Maybe researchers will regard subjective experience as a valid human perception. BRAVO for making me think, feel and listen to music in a more focused way.

This book has been life changing in healing my Mother's brain injuries after a trauma in an accident with a tractor trailer. Having read the book, I took his music for healing to her hospital ICU and instructed the nurses to keep the music on at all times. I literally watched her come out of a coma, first tapping her toes to the music, then her fingers, then humming. In the unsettling sounds of a hospital, this gave her calm and focused on the area of healing where she needed it most. Personally, anytime I want to be focused, I also use Don Campbell's music. It works!  

   ...  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. 


"Don Campbell is the dean of sound healers. His work is of inestimable value. Practical, mystical and visionary, he makes the world of music accessible, friendly, and profoundly healing."   - Julia Cameron, author of "The Artist's Way
"For several years now Don Campbell has been releasing a secret known for ages: Music is not just entertainment. It is the medicine for body and soul. Intelligent, informed and practical, Don is an excellent guide to the wide-ranging power of music to inspire, educate, and heal."  - Thomas Moore, author of "Care of the Soul and "The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life
"Don Campbell has written a fascinating and informative book--a tuning fork for our times. Listening to good music, rather than hearing only the cacophony of noises rattling through our modern world, can bolster the body's responses, mend the mind and restore harmony to the soul."  - Clarissa Pinkola Est?s, Ph.D, author of "Women Who Run With the Wolves and "The Gift of Story

Excellent Introduction to the Healing Power of  Music …. This book is an excellent one for beginners.  When I was led to The Mozart Effect in an out of town bookstore, I was interested to learn more about the topic. I found Campbell's writing style easy to follow and the many individual stories instructive. The book provides just the right blend of science and human reality to bring the topic to life for me. I'm sure that it will for other readers. There has been more Mozart playing in our home since reading the book!  

Unique restoration of the connection between music and life  ….   For me, the Mozart Effect is a seminal work of great importance. Campbell uses his singular life experience and early exposure to some of the great musical minds of the 20th century to breach the void that exists so commonly between the creators of great music and the audience of listeners for whom music is simply joy. The power of music is a magical, mystical and ultimately very mysterious phenomenon. In the 20th century music has been removed from its primal roots. Separated from the vital level of humanity, much of music's power has been lost. The blessing of Campbell's book is that it is the first modern (non-academic) volume to re-examine the fundamental connections between our bodies and the inexplicable, compelling and universal phenomenon of music. Much will come from The Mozart Effect. Many will find a new path to old truths.

GREAT book! BRAVO FROM A PIANO TEACHER IN NYC  ….  After 35 years of teaching piano, there is finally a book that empowers MUSIC. I've used imagery and a variety of styles of music to lead my students to quality classical music. This book has included the powers of music beyond our traditional uses: for performance, entertainment. Mr. Campbell uses the mind, the body and the heart as part of the great world of music. I wish every music teacher would read this book.


Marvellous Reading!
