Daniel J. Levitin

Overview

Daniel Levitin is a man of many pursuits. He's a cognitive psychologist, neuroscientist, TED speaker, best-selling author, musician, and record producer. But above all, Levitin is dedicated to one thing: helping us to understand music.

This Is Your Brain on Music was released in 2006 and quickly became a New York Times bestseller with over one million copies sold. It takes a look into what happens in your brain when rhythm, pitch, tempo, loudness, and reverberation come together.

And this analysis won't only help you understand music better, but it'll also prepare you to become a more skilled musician.

"A bowl of pudding only has taste when I put it in my mouth - when it is in contact with my tongue. It doesn't have taste or flavor sitting in my fridge, only the potential."
