The 1997 book by Don Campbell, The Mozart Effect: Tapping the Power of Music to Heal the Body . After The Mozart Effect, Campbell wrote a follow-up book, The Mozart Effect For Children, and created related products.

The 1997 book by Don Campbell, The Mozart Effect: Tapping the Power of Music to Heal the Body, Strengthen the Mind, and Unlock the Creative Spirit, discusses the theory that listening to Mozart (especially the piano concertos) may temporarily increase one's IQ and produce many other beneficial effects on mental function. Campbell recommends playing specially selected classical music to infants, in the expectation that it will benefit their mental development.

But it took celebrated teacher and music visionary Don Campbell to show us just how deep, with his landmark book The Mozart Effect. Stimulating, authoritative, and often lyrical, The Mozart Effect has a simple but life-changing message: music is medicine for the body, the mind, and the soul. Campbell shows how modern science has begun to confirm this ancient wisdom, finding evidence that listening to certain types of music can improve the quality of life in almost every respect.

Don Campbell is a classically-trained musician and educator, who founded the Institute of Music, Health and Education in 1988. He has also written the books The Mozart Effect for Children: Awakening Your Child's Mind, Health, and Creativity with Music,The Roar of Silence: Healing Powers of Breath, Tone and Music (Quest Books), etc.

He admits about himself, "I visited my friend Jean Houston... She and her friend Peggy Rubin ... simply placed their hands on the right side of my body... The results came back: the clot had decreased from more than an inch and a half to less than an eighth of an inch... And I knew I had been healed by the music of the spheres---or should I say hemispheres?" (Pg. 9)

He observes, "Following the Irvine studies, a number of public schools introduced Mozart pieces as background music and reported improvements in their pupils' attention and performance." (Pg. 17) He argues, "Why not call the transformative powers of music the Bach Effect, the Beethoven Effect, or the Beatles Effect? ... (Alfred) Tomatis has posed the same questions. And he has found, again and again, that regardless of a listener's tastes or previous exposure to the composer, the music of Mozart invariably calmed listeners, improved spatial perception, and allowed them to express themselves more clearly---communicating with both heart and mind." (Pg. 27)

Of his practice of "toning," he notes, "I did not coin the word 'toning.' Meaning to make sound with an elongated vowel for an extended period, it dates back at least to the fourteenth century." (Pg. 91) He adds, "'Jesus knew the power of listening,' observes Tomatis, a devout Catholic. To him, Jesus embodied the Word---the logos, the perfect sound." (Pg. 117)

He explains, "How does music boost the intellect and enhance learning? Does it stimulate an area of the brain associated with creativity? ... Why does the Mozart Effect work? Tracing neurological development through childhood provides clues to this quest." (Pg. 191) He adds, "A main theme of 'The Mozart Effect' is that music heals but is not prescriptive. Its power varies according to the composition, the performer, the listener, the posture assumed in listening, and other factors." (Pg. 221) He also admits, "In visits to Dallas hospitals and clinics in the mid-eighties, I found that ambient and New Age music didn't work for teenagers with serious burns. Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, and the latest rock hits masked their pain better and made them feel more connected to their bodies than tranquil sounds. Relaxing music was too painful to listen to." (Pg. 240)

It's possible, of course, that this concept is mythical. [It apparently began not with Tomatis, but with a 1993 report in the scientific journal Nature that listening to a Mozart sonata improved the performance of college students on a complex spatial reasoning task; see Welcome to Your Brain: Why You Lose Your Car Keys but Never Forget How to Drive and Other Puzzles of Everyday Life.] But there is certainly no HARM to come from following Campbell's advice---and one's aesthetic sense may certainly benefit from it.
