About IFMR

The International Foundation for Music Research (IFMR) was founded in 1997 to support scientific research to explore the relationship between music and physical and emotional wellness, with particular attention to the elderly population, the impact of music making on at-risk youth, and music education and the effect of music and music making. IFMR also convenes scientists, educators and others around critical issues in music research and disseminates research through its publication, IFMR News, and various on-line research referral services and archives.

The News & Events and Publications are interesting.

Thanks Frank. This sort of thing interests me very much. Some of my musical responses are quite abnormal, leading me to suspect that the part played by childhood experience may be greater than supposed. I'm also convinced that the therapeutic value of music has been grossly undervalued.

I agree Ted.
I have an 88 note electronic piano in my office right next to the computers. If I feel myself getting tense, I play the piano and soon enough I begin to relaxe and I'm ready to go back to work.
