In this episode of Light Transitions Radio, we spend time with one of the true visionaries in the field of sound and music healing, Don Campbell. Imagine how our lives would be different if we could use the music we love to create the perfect soundtrack for any goal or task? Don shares how to creatively tap the power of sound to improve our own and others’ lives.
Don Campbell, author of 23 books, is widely known for his bestsellers, The Mozart Effect® and The Mozart Effect® for Children, which have been translated into 24 languages. Equally popular are the accompanying 16 Music for the Mozart Effect®, recordings, which dominated the Billboard Classical charts for over three years.
His latest book, Healing at the Speed of Sound, is based on over a decade of new research, and shows how we can use music-and silence-to become more efficient, productive, relaxed, and healthy.
Don Campbell is a leading lecturer and consultant to healthcare organizations as well as corporations and parenting groups. He works with audiences of symphony orchestras on how music can affect learning, health, and other aspects of our lives. He is Acoustic and Musical Director of Aesthetic Audio Systems, an innovative company that provides quality music to healthcare facilities and has served for the past ten years on the Board of the American Music Research Center at the University of Colorado. In 2006, he was honored as “Signature Sinfonian” with the Award for Outstanding Service to Music and Education from Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity. He has also been awarded “Director Emeritus” of the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra and now provides the pre-concert lecture series and directs the SuperListening™ Club.
In Don’s unique view, music is not only a rich and rewarding aesthetic experience, but also an easily accessible bridge to a more creative, intelligent, healthy, and joy-filled life. His singular mission is to help return music to its central place in the modern world, as a resource for growth, development, health, and celebration.
