The NPR show, Talk of the Nation, recently did a show highlighting the work of Elena Mannes and her new book, The Power of Music. You can listen to the interview or read the transcript here. I enjoyed the stories about how music has changed people's lives. It was nice that they also had people calling in to the show telling their stories and asking questions. Elena Mannes is not a music therapist or scientist, but it is nice to have producers and authors creating books and other media materials about the power of music. I recommend that you take a few minutes and listen to the short broadcast and also forward it to someone you know who might appreciate learning more about how music works and why music makes sense!
