In the western culture of classical music, however, one seldom speaks of healing sounds. Nevertheless, classical music has particularly great transformational and healing power, as the musicians of this genre produce very pure tones which expand the energy bodies of the listeners and cause them to vibrate.
Classical musicians must be able to fill large rooms with sound with their voice or instrument, without the need for amplification by a microphone. In order to achieve this, they themselves must be a very good instrument. They must know and channel their own breath, their own energy, their body and the energy-flow of the sounds they produce. Finding the ideal body-tone when making music is a part of long-term training. In order for even very soft tones to be audible in large halls, a musician must be one with the tone and the flow of breath – ultimately their body has to disappear into the sound. This connectedness and presence when making music and singing automatically has healing effects on the listener, whether the singer is singing an intimate opera aria or an aria from an oratorio.
Moreover, many classical works have a great healing and meditative effect. This is especially known about Mozart’s and Bach’s compositions and has been studied and tested many times.
