Our relationship with music begins before birth and is hard-wired in the womb - the musicality of the mother's voice creates a powerful bond which scientists think is pivotal to the infant's survival. As young children we acquire language and numeracy skills best when music is involved: we learn the alphabet in song, our times table to a rhythmic pattern.

As we reach our teen years, research shows that our relationship with music is as important to us as our relationship with our friends. Throughout our lifespan, whatever our cultural background, music is right there with us marking every milestone in our life and setting the mood for all occasions.

When it comes to studying and learning, music can play a vital role. Listening to music triggers endorphins (natural pain relief) and dopamine (feelings of buoancy, optimism, energy and power), and reduce the stress hormone cortisol. It also affects the heart rate and blood pressure. The result: the calm but alert alpha brain state which is ideal for learning.

This 2-CD album contains over two hours of music carefully selected to trigger the brain / body responses that will set you up for a productive study session: calmed, soothed and ready to learn.
