  • Holistic Music Healing Update: New collection of five one-hour video Live Stream concerts are now on YouTube

    Andy Wasserman's YouTube Channelnow features a five-part series of solo piano Holistic Music Healing Live Stream concert videos presented to inspire, relax, refresh, rejuvenate and restore a sense of personal balance for the listener. These concerts are part of his series entitled "The Listening Experience," and take place each and every Sunday at 7:00pm ET (New York). All music in this video series contain original solo piano music composed, arranged and performed by Andy Wasserman on his 1924 Steinway model "M" grand piano. He has been researching, exploring and utilizing many therapeutic and healing modalities of music since 1974.

    Most everyone is in agreement that beautiful, peaceful music can soothe the emotions, purify the heart, uplift and bring a sense of peacefulness. But did you know that in ancient times, music was created with the intention to heal illness?


    The wisdom of these supreme Jazz innovators echoes this sentiment and perspective:

    "Music has many uses and I think the most perfected use that music has is one of a healing quality." - Ornette Coleman

    "One positive thought produces millions of positive vibrations." - John Coltrane

    "Music is the framework around the silence." - Miles Davis

    "Music is the tonal reflection of beauty." - Duke Ellington

    "Your humanity is your instrument." - Wayne Shorter

    "If you strive to become a good human being with the qualities of generosity, humility and having reverence for life...just maybe you'll become a great musician." - Charlie Haden

    "The idea is more important than the style you're playing in." - Ornette Coleman

    "My creed for art in general is that it should enrich the soul; it should teach spirituality by showing a person a portion of himself that he would not discover otherwise...a part of yourself you never knew existed." - Bill Evans

    "Music is the healing force of the universe."- Albert Ayler

    Commentary on Andy's perspective on Holistic Music Healing:

    Andy Wasserman began his personal quest for the universal sound beginning at a young age, and has persevered with loyal unwavering dedication to continually explore and develop a deep connection with the reality of music as an instrument of healing. Visit his Holistic Music Healing web page at this link:
    https://andywasserman.com/arts-in-ed/holistic-music-healing

    Ancient music, whether from Africa, China, the Middle East or India, was used for medicinal purposes and as a language for communication and storytelling. In this way, music was used to preserve time-capsules of human history, wisdom and knowledge.

    As a musical artist who strives to walk his talk, Andy's life work in holistic music healing has been - more than anything else - the purifying and balancing force which guides his daily work of inner evolution on a path that integrates creative expression with sincerity as self-realized service to humanity. The Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization - the art and science of tonal gravity by George Russellis a central part of the practice and process.

    He is of the firm conviction that music is a gift, given by the Creator to humankind in order to make us better listeners. It is always calling us to listen both outwardly and inwardly to the meaningful things in life, such as:
        • listen to the sounds of nature, i.e. -wind, water, birds, insects, animal calls, weather
        • listen to your heart, i.e. - the voice of your conscience at the center of your being
        • listen to your body, i.e. - what your body is telling you
        • listen to your parents, teachers and mentors
        • listen to your friends and family
        • listen to the Spirit, using your intuitive intelligence and higher emotional center
        • listen to the message of the language of music within the music

    Perhaps the most compelling attribute to listen to is the silence.

    It is the music in us that hears the music.

    Therefore, the ultimate purpose of music is to resonate and speak to us as a powerful voice for Unity.

    This is how Andy defines the holistic approach to music as a restorative tonic which can touch physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels within everyone.
