Music 4 Classrooms and Hospitals
...in their own words
Music 4 Classrooms
"When I work with small groups of fourth and fifth graders who have anger management issues, I purposefully play the ‘MEE Concert’ as background music at the beginning of the group. The MEE tape appears to de-escalate their anxiety levels. After doing this for the first few meetings, I am able to use just mellow music for the rest of the groups because they seem to be able to shift on their own – into a more calm state – when they enter the room. After several years of experience using this method successfully, I recommend that other counselors and teachers consider playing the ‘MEE Concert’ during class or groups to possibly make their job easier in managing student behavior."

"Judith created a custom MEE tape for me in 1997 to relieve sleep problems. So when I was admitted to the hospital in another state for stroke symptoms, Judith modified the MEE tape into a CD more appropriate for ICU care, and I found it to be very relaxing. I got frustrated many times and would play it 3-4 times a day. When I would wake up in the middle of the night, not being able to sleep, I would play it, and was able to get back to sleep. Or when I wanted to nap and couldn’t because I was frustrated with being in the hospital, I would play it and be able to take a relaxing nap. It works!!The hospital staff was surprised that I was released so soon from the hospital (day 4), and directly from ICU, rather than staying the week that was anticipated."

"I was admitted to the hospital for testing because I had really bad headaches for four days in a row. I didn’t want to watch television while I waited to hear what the next step would be during my two-days there. So I listened to the MEE Concert. It took my mind off waiting for answers and my tension went away. I wish I’d had the music in the emergency room when I waited for seven hours to see the doctor."
