We are the "Peloton" of music and brain science
Our daily classes are livestreamed to employees around the world

Music & Brain Health
89% of adults who play an instrument think playing music keeps them mentally balanced
75% use playing music specifically as a way to de-stress
74% said that just picking up their instrument – with no intention to even play it – can make them feel better
(These figures were published by Spotify in July 2020 and we find the same responses on our programme)
How Does It Work?
Our brain is utterly amazing, but it's hopelessly out of date and evolves very slowly. So, it's not going to catch up during our lifetime. It's running an ancient operating system that's many, many millions of year behind the times.
It's living inside a dark, silent box (our skull) trying to figure out what the heck is going on in the outside world. It does this by interpreting information received by our senses and assessing whether we're in danger or not.
Our brain has no idea that we've very recently invented cars, light bulbs, supermarkets, processed food, public transport, offices, computers, emails etc. So, it often gets confused by the data it receives and chooses the wrong response.
The ears don't lead to a dead end or a black hole..they lead to the BRAIN.
Sound is a very important data input channel to the brain and produces instant responses. We show you how to harness the proven effects of sound on the brain, to improve and futureproof your health quickly. Our programme uses music to teach you how your brain works and how to maximise it.
PRIORITISE YOUR PEOPLE
A third of current degenerative brain disease cases could have been prevented earlier in life
The significant role that music can play in health and wellbeing is not being sufficiently recognised and harnessed
World Health Organisation, 2019
The powerful effects of music and sound on the brain are well documented in neuroscience and psychology journals but this valuable knowledge is not yet sufficiently understood by employers
Dr Julia Jones, Founder of The Music Diet
Poor mental health now costs UK employers £45bn per year (up from £37bn in 2016), but they now reap £5 of cost savings for every £1 invested on interventions
"Dr Rock is spot on. Her book The Music Diet demonstrates how what we listen to can influence our physical and mental health. That's why employers should listen up and take note - they may be surprised by the results.”
