Sure we've heard the teens say they study better with their walkman, and if you've been in Long's Drugs or the Body Shop recently maybe you've noticed that it's *not* muzak, but "music." Brant and Harvey explain clearly how music affects our bodies and brains to bring us to a state of concentration that will promote creativity, energy, reflection. We have examples from history and from current research which back up the intuitive feelings that most people have about how music can help or hinder them in their daily tasks. So this book is a great resource for any trainer, especially with the CD - instead of carrying around 20 difference disks, I now have it all on one disk - 75 minutes of well-chosen music that takes my group from 'welcoming', through 'creativity - energizing -reflecting ' to 'departing.' They loved it! We had a very successful session, but the questions raised about the music made the participants not only appreciate my efforts as a trainer, but also it made them think about the music choices *they* could make when working on their own - which of course, is always the long term goal of the trainer.
If you are an NLP practitioner, then you will be familiar with the use of music for accelerated learning, but Choosing and Using Music in Training is a useful resource, and certainly should be a textbook for any 'train the trainer' workshops. The authors also cover how to use music, the importance of silence!, choosing equipment, licenses, and a useful FAQ section.
As a memeber of ASTD, I would say this is all you need to get you on the right track!
