Sound Well-Being Through Music
What is “sound well-being?” And how can I do it “through music?”

To do this “through music” involves coming to know your deepest self- your desires, thoughts, fears, and POSSIBILITIES – through music.
Ask yourself, “Am I experiencing sound well-being?” If not, do you want to? If you want to, do you want to do it through music?
