About the Focus CD

Preliminary research in cognition has indicated learning can be enhanced for students by using music composed with fifty beats or less per minute.  With this research in mind, Hesh created the Focus CD to help individuals better concentrate on a task or series of tasks.

While the music of Focus is contemporary, it has a “Mozart-like” effect on the brain which for many students sharpens concentration and extends the attention span. The original music is instrumental, slower in rhythm and designed to be more like typical background music.

How to use this CD

This CD is recommended for study times or during prolonged periods requiring concentration, or whenever performing a task needs sure focus. To explain, the CD is divided into different sections of music. Those listening to the CD should listen to each section in order to evaluate preferred songs in specific settings.

What we found at Lakeside

We use the Focus CD in some of our classrooms at Lakeside, particularly when we want students to take time to study or complete a project. The music can become a great aid to classroom management and academic growth, a definite help to students.

We are thrilled at the opportunity to provide our brain-based and trauma-informed music to our greater community.

The Focus CD is a great example of how music can help individuals stay with and complete a task. Along with the rest of our therapeutic music, you can order the Focus CD by clicking the order button below. It will take you to a separate page where you can type in your order and payment information.


Thank you for your order.
