Have you ever noticed that there is a link between the music that you listen to and your health? This book explores the connection between the music we listen to and our overall well-being.

This book covers the following topics:

Harmony: Fundamental to both Music and Health

Why is the "Music for Health" Conversation Relevant?

What Health Benefits Does Music Offer?

Unhealthy Music VS. Healthy Music

How Can I Find the Best Music for Me?

Ten Ways to Improve Your Health with Music Now
