Write your way to happiness, fulfillment and peace
In the midst of a looming mental health crisis, author Tim Cheesebrow, founder of the music education non-profit Discover Music, offers a solution. Music has been used for healing the mind for all of recorded history, the problem these days is that people assume music is only something professionals can do. Using research-based methods that have been tested in the crucible of public middle school classrooms, Cheesebrow gives readers the tools they need to start writing songs of their own and using that music to live a better life.
“Music has given me a voice. It has given me access to expression and energy like nothing else. Without music I would be eaten alive and swallowed by my emotions.”
