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 Music Diet programme)


Dr Julia Jones (aka Dr Rock) has been examining the effects of sound and music on the brain for over 25 years. She is a leading wellness expert advising a range of clients including the NHS, elite sports professionals, UK Government bodies and corporate clients. Julia first began prescribing music in the 1990s while working as a psychologist, helping young GB Olympic squads achieve peak performance by controlling anxiety and boosting motivation, focus and confidence.

Julia wrote 'The Music Diet' book to spread awareness regarding the phenomenal effects of music and sound on the brain and body. It highlighted decades of neuroscience research and gave simple tips showing how to use music to boost brain and body wellness. The Music Diet book became a wellness programme in November 2019. Julia's next book - The Brain Rocks - will be published in January 2021 is designed to act as a mini manual of brain tools showing you how to maximise the power of your brain to boost your wellbeing and performance forever.
