“Music acts like a magic key, to which the most tightly closed heart opens.”
— Maria Augusta von Trapp

Today’s Excerpt:

One reason music is so powerful is that it reverberates in your body.

Try it out. Hum a note together.

If you want help in finding a note, listen to this “E.”

Multi Octave Sustained Notes E

See if you can keep with it for at least two minutes — either with a hum or with an “ah” — paying attention to what it feels like in your body. (If you’re musically inclined, try humming in triads together, or even improvising on this note.)


  • Does anything feel different in your body? If so, where do you feel it?
