‘Music is Medicine’ is a ‘Music in Care’ book by John Osborne for people undergoing medical treatment.
Music is central to our experience of the world around us. It is a primary source of the way we experience, understand and interpret the world in which we live. It is one of the core experiences that define us, unite us and enrich us.
The original ‘Music in Care’ book, ‘Soundtrack to My Life’, arose out of John’s professional care experience and personal experience as a carer for his father. As a musician he understood the power of music to enrich the quality of life.
Having been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer John realised that specially chosen pieces of music also have a major role in supporting people who are going through complex medical procedures. This practical, fun and interactive book is designed to help people to draw together those pieces of music that are most significant to them.
