Significant evidence has shown that particular types of music can improve our ability to learn. Baroque music is particularly conducive as it helps us to attain a state of relaxed alertness, known as the "alpha state", which is so beneficial to effective study. While in the alpha state, a person is able to learn in a stress-free, high-energy environment. When classical music of around 60 beats per minute is arranged and performed on a synthesiser, the results are even more effective. Crown House Publishing has exclusively commissioned ex-Fulbright scholar and Master of Music, Roland Roberts, to arrange two hours of of �Passive Music� specifically for the purpose of accelerating your learning. Specially arranged, this twin CD set provides background music when studying that will help to accelerate the pace of learning effortlessly.
