I am really excited about a wonderful new project that Don Campbell, author of The Mozart Effect®, and my son Alex Doman are collaborating on. The SoundSwell™ blog is a place for people to share their experiences with music of all sorts.
“SoundSwell™ is a blog about the rising musical tide around us: the negative effects of noise and the positive effects of organized rhythmic sounds and melodies that improve and sometimes heal us. This is a part of our HATSS™ project that is surveying the hundreds of studies that have been made in the past few years for the purpose of helping teachers, students, parents and healthcare workers improve their lives with music.
This blog is about you and your experiences in your work, home and school with music. From research to interesting stories, we want to listen, learn and share. Are there new trends in your community using music? Have you experienced a surprising and perhaps amazing event with sound?
Over the coming months, we will share with you some of the most interesting projects we’ve encountered. But now, let’s begin to explore the world of music and sound. What’s on your mind?”
Please take a peek and share any interesting stories on their blog that you have about the role music plays in your life. If you know of someone else who has a story to share, please share the link with them: http://soundswell.org
I have gotten a couple of wonderful comments on this post about how people use music in their lives. If you do have comments to share, please go to the SoundSwell blog to do so. That way more people will be able to read your thoughts. Thanks so much, it seems clear that music is an important if not an essential part of many of our lives! Ginger
