Karl Bruhn stated “Recreational Music Making encompasses enjoyable, accessible and fulfilling group music-based activities that unite people of all ages regardless of their challenges, backgrounds, ethnicity, ability or prior experience.”
(*quoted from the “father” of the Music Making and Wellness movement”, Karl Bruhn)
Since the time of Socrates and Plato, people have recognized the benefits of making music. As early as the 1990’s, a group of music industry and medical professionals set out to determine whether or not a first recreational music making experience could reverse stress-induced biological changes that can lead not only significant positive changes in blood pressure levels, melatonin, serotonin and natural human growth hormone levels, as well as serious illnesses such as heart disease, cancer and more recently Alzheimer's. The research team discovered that participating in this controlled study group of over 150 people produced far greater reversal of stress-induced changes at the DNA level than typical relaxation activities and their counterparts in a matched-size group where there were no music classes involved during the same 20 weeks showed NO significant positive changes whatsoever. This scientific breakthrough was then published in the New England Journal of Medicine and provides key evidence documenting the extraordinary lifestyle benefits of Music and Wellness and recreational music making, the foundations of the PLAY MUSIC – ENJOY LIFE!™ program.
