The author reveals in straightforward language why music is a critical learning resource, explains the necessary concepts and terms, and concludes with vivid examples of practice and a list of suggested resources. He provides all the background and tools to enable trainers and educators confidently to use music to improve learning.

A valuable and extensive appendix lists recommended CDs and offers track-by-track examples of potential training applications.

Know how to select music appropriate for different training situations
Discover effective musical games and activities and how they teach
