NOVA Presents Program on the Power of Music and the Brain

A NEW NOVA documentary entitled 'Musical Minds' explores the power of music to impact the brain, and facilitate healing. 

Dr.  Oliver Sacks, an author and practicing neurologist in New York City and dubbed the poet laureate of medicine by the New York Times, leads the important discussion.  The PBS program is scheduled to air nationwide on June 30th at 8 p.m. Check your listings for local air time/date. Find out more about 'Musical Minds' here.

I'm a big believer in the power of music to transform lives, especially for those with special needs. I witnessed it first hand with my son, and I see it every year at RicStar's Camp.

Music is magic! -and so is PBS.
