Here is one dictionary definition of music: vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.
That’s an acceptable definition, but it doesn’t capture the essence of music power. It doesn’t hint at the power of music to heal, transform, and even, to save lives. Music power embraces all of these.
The guest of today’s episode is Bill Protzmann. He’s a musician. He’s also a man who has experienced the deepest meaning of music power, and he enriches people’s lives with what he’s learned.
These are a few of the enriching gems you’ll discover as Bill Protzmann and I take a deep dive into the magic of music:
- How music literally saved Bill’s life
- A journey from despair to joyful song writing
- Music’s power to heal trauma
- Practical Heart Kills & how music enriches them
- How to identify your power music
- The hidden magic of gratitude and appreciation
- The relationship between music and business growth
You will also learn the difference between musical therapy and musical care. Why is that important? Because you can master musical care on your own and use it to enrich your life.

The above is usually misquoted as “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
