How it Works

Like a Gym for the Ear!

By listening to carefully processed music using dynamic frequency ranges and sound movement techniques, the muscles of the middle ear become exercised and strengthened, and the ear drum becomes taut, restoring and normalizing the way you process and integrate sensory information. Missing frequencies from your listening spectrum are revived and balanced allowing the body's homeostastis to be achieved and maintained.

Some of the Many Applications for APP

Singers, Speakers, Musicians, Producers, Engineers, Actors  Reports by singers and speakers who have had the APP training as well as Dr. Tomatis and those knowledgable in the field say that within a few sessions, the quality of the voice may attain a more brilliant or vibrant timbre with easier flexibility and more resonance. Accurate timing of pitch perception is heightened and music is understood and appreciated more. Expression, memorization of lyrics and music is facilitated. Sense of time, phrasing, rhythm, along with body image, posture and body awareness is improved. Better fine and gross motor control of muscles. Pronunciation and diction clears up. Learning a foreign language is expedited. Turbo charges sight-reading music, with or without lyrics. Energy, overall exuberance and self-confidence is boosted. We’ve had success rejuvenating atrophied vocal cords; toning them and aligning their function again. Restore missing resonances and frequencies in the listening range for a better timbre, easier ascending through the passagios or "breaks." We've had successes getting people to sing on pitch or in tune who have never done so before. Perception and location of sound or where a sound is coming from is clarified. Residual hearing loss is optimized. The body and mind become simultaneously energized and relaxed. Creativity is augmented.

The ear drum, like a snare drum, needs to be tuned and made taut. The two tiny muscles of the middle ear also need toning to function better, especially if a singer or someone who uses their ears and/or voice for a living, has had or has allergies, bad colds, laryngitis, viral, bacterial infections, chronic ear infections and other nasty 'bugs' or a whack on the head that can be at the root of these issues affecting how we sing and speak. It is the ear that controls the voice, stimulates the brain, and effects the entire body.
