Alpha Music: John Levine

Alpha music takes you from a Beta state to an Alpha state which assists the brain to relax allowing the body time to recuperate.  Music Therapy for mind, body and soul.

We love John’s music so much at The Academy that we decided we just had to sell it!  We use his music constantly whilst meditating and changing the energies in a room and can highly recommend anything he produces.

No other composer has set out with the same intent that drives John Levine. Trained originally as an electronic engineer and then as a classical composer, John has also studied psychology and the physiology of hearing. He read about the discovery by Dr Hans Berger, of how the brain emits electrical waves, which rise and fall in intensity depending on our mood. After considerable experimentation, John established the pattern of sound that predictably invites the brain to settle into alpha state. This is a calmer state than the excitable peaks and troughs, known as beta, which contribute to feelings of anxiety.  While beta has its purpose, it also interferes with our ability to stop, take stock and work out a better long-term solution to a stressful situation.  For more about John and his music go to
