The Listening Program® is a neuroscience-based music listening therapy for achieving optimum brain health and functioning

About TLP

The Listening Program® is not like any music you’ve heard before. It’s more than music. It’s music that works—to improve your mental, physical, and emotional health.

All TLP music has been painstakingly recorded and engineered and features performances by world-class musicians including the award-winning Arcangelos Chamber Ensemble (under the musical direction of Richard Lawrence) and composer and master ethno-percussionist Nacho Arimany, among others.

Using the highest audio quality recording technology (high-definition sound) and advanced neuro-acoustic techniques, TLP music has been acoustically modified to train your brain. It strengthens neurological pathways so you can improve your ability to learn, communicate, and process information.

TLP can benefit most anyone, and applications are wide ranging, from rehabilitation to wellness and peak performance. TLP can be used in schools, hospitals, therapy clinics, assisted living facilities, companies, athletic and music programs, in homes, and on military bases—and more.

Backed by science

Our vision at Advanced Brain Technologies is to transform the life of every person by offering them programs for optimal brain health and functioning

To fulfill our vision, we start with the scientific evidence that the brain has a natural ability to physically change itself and strengthen its neural networks in response to a person’s experiences. This is called neuroplasticity, and it occurs not just in childhood but throughout an individual’s lifetime.

While the field of neuroscience only validated this concept in the last 20 years, our founder’s family of human development pioneers observed this clinically in the mid-twentieth century. Experts in brain injury rehabilitation and child development, they were among the first to develop brain-training exercises to reorganize the brain and improve its performance. This is the foundation The Listening Program® builds on today. But not just any brain games or music will do. Brain games are just that—games to entertain. For music to make meaningful long-term changes, it should be scientifically created to improve brain health and functioning.

We design personalized, adaptive brain-training programs that use scientifically designed music to meet your individual goals, focusing on what matters most to you. Our patent-pending artificial intelligence system will create your program to target specific areas of brain performance: executive function, communication, auditory processing, social and emotional skills, stress management, motor coordination, and creative expression. Training in these areas can greatly improve all areas of your life, leading to better health and wellness, increased productivity, and more self-confidence.


TLP programs

Sound is everywhere. It’s as much a part of our lives as the air we breathe and the food we eat.

Many of us become stressed or uncomfortable because of sounds we are hearing, whether or not we are aware that it’s sounds that are making us feel frazzled. Science shows that negative sound exposure adversely impacts health, sleep, attention, learning, communication, listening, and more.

Fortunately, there is an easy and effective solution…

The Listening Program® SPECTRUM is a foundational program created for children and adults with sensory sensitivities who need therapeutic intervention. It’s also effective for those seeking less stress and greater wellness.

SPECTRUM promotes a healthier relationship with sound by training your brain with enjoyable music that is scientifically designed to change your brain’s neural networks. SPECTRUM can improve sound brain fitness and auditory processing, reduce sensory sensitivities, and help you find comfort and safety in your environment.

Featuring an extensive library of high-definition music recordings performed by the award-winning Arcangelos Chamber Ensemble, SPECTRUM is offered in Spatial Surround® sound. Its rich tapestry of sound features compositions by Mozart, Haydn, Vivaldi, and Danzi.

SPECTRUM is arranged in four progressive frequency zones and stimulates different areas of the brain and their related functions during the course of your personalized listening schedule. The training emphasizes lower frequency music that supports social and emotional functions, motor coordination, stress response, sensory processing, and more.

Success is within our reach. It’s in our nature to develop ourselves and accomplish what we set our minds to do.

Those who attain their goals and fully realize their potential develop their ability to focus, listen, learn, communicate, plan, organize, and manage time, all while increasing their skills, imagination, creativity, motivation, and persistence.

There is a practical and effective tool for success…Achieve is an intermediate- to experienced-level program developed for older children, teens, and adults seeking changes in learning, communication, and peak performance. Achieve increases mental performance by training the brain using motivating, evidence-based music. The music provides a “work-enhancing” effect to help people achieve better performance and operate more effectively in their career, at school, or in socializing and interacting with family and friends.

Featuring an extensive library of high-definition music recordings performed by the award-winning Arcangelos Chamber Ensemble, Achieve is offered in Spatial Surround® sound and provides a rich tapestry of sound featuring compositions by Mozart, Haydn, Vivaldi, and Danzi.

Achieve is arranged in four progressive frequency zones, stimulating different brain areas and their related functions during the course of a personalized listening schedule. The training emphasis is on the middle to higher frequency music in the orange and red zones, supporting auditory processing, communication, executive function, creative expression, personal development, increased energy, motivation, musicality, and more.

LEVEL ONE is the most widely used series in The Listening Program® It is flexible, offering a foundational level program, an experienced level one, and programs in between for improving brain function and mental abilities at any age.

To accommodate individual listener preferences, LEVEL ONE is available in two options: music only or music blended with beautiful sounds of nature. While many prefer to enjoy and focus on the engaging music, others, especially children, will benefit from the listening to music and nature sounds together.

LEVEL ONE includes an extensive library of high-definition music recordings performed by the award-winning Arcangelos Chamber Ensemble. Offered in Spatial Surround® sound, LEVEL ONE provides a wide variety of listening with compositions by Mozart, Haydn, Vivaldi, and Danzi.

LEVEL ONE is arranged in four progressive frequency zones that stimulate different brain areas and their related functions during the course of a personalized listening schedule. Because training emphasis is well balanced across the zones, LEVEL ONE is adaptable for people of all ages, supporting social and emotional function, auditory processing, communication, executive function, creative expression, motor coordination, stress response, self-awareness, musicality, and more.

The brain is musical; neuroscience has proven through functional brain imaging that music engages more brain areas than anything else. And rhythm is the most important, fundamental aspect of music.

Rhythm increases awareness of the brain-body connection and improves brain health and functioning.

Children, teens, and adults can engage with the rhythm-based music of inTime to help stimulate rhythm awareness, focus, timing precision, and adaptive responses to stress, all of which supply your brain with the highest quality of stimulation it needs.inTime provides a personalized program of listening training and fun movement activities using body, drum, and voice. It features original pieces by musician and composer Nacho Arimany, whose distinctive blending of world music styles includes diverse percussion, string, and wind instrumentation. Orchestrated percussive rhythms and specific sound frequencies serve as the basis for a rich melodic and harmonic structure.

The beautiful and powerful world music of inTime was developed over the course of over five years by the multidisciplinary team behind The Listening Program® and was produced by occupational therapist Sheila Allen, composer and musician Nacho Arimany, and co-author of Healing at the Speed of Sound and founder and CEO of Advanced Brain Technologies Alex Doman.
