Where does music come from?
And why does it play such an enormous role in our lives?
In my first book, The Musical Brain, I admitted that, “If I didn’t have music, I’d be certified insane.” And I stand by it.
Music taps into the brain, the heart and the soul like nothing else.
And today I’m thrilled to welcome to the show, Mr. Wayne Altman, a U.S. Army Veteran, author, and creator of MelodyClouds.
After his hearing was damaged during service in the army, causing severe ringing in the ears or tinnitus, Wayne experimented with sound masking and binaural beats to help ease his symptoms.
He’s here today sharing how we can use sound with intention to improve our mental health and performance. We’re chatting about:
- How to utilize music functionally to achieve different brain states and boost mood
- The origins of music and why it affects us so profoundly
- How to use sound masking to ease symptoms of ringing in the ears and improve physiological states
- How music and sound is used by Hollywood, the military and corporations (for better or worse)
- And much more…
Let’s go hang out with Wayne.

Thinking back to last night, did you get enough sleep?
Are you feeling well-rested and ready to rock?
For some people including me, nutrient deficiencies can get in the way of proper rest and recovery.
And you might be surprised to learn that over 75% of the population is deficient in magnesium.
And what most people don’t know is that even if you’re taking a magnesium supplement, you may still be deficient if you’re not getting all 7 forms.
The good news is that Magnesium Breakthrough from BiOptimizers packs all 7 forms of magnesium into one powerhouse supplement.
Not only can the proper forms of Magnesium help you sleep better, it also helps calm your mind and allows you to feel grounded and relaxed during the day, especially before bed as you drift off to sleep.
