Connect the brain and the body using rhythm


The brain is designed to experience music. Neuroscience has proven through functional brain imaging that music engages more brain areas than anything else does. And rhythm is the most important, fundamental aspect of music.


inTime for everyone

Children, adolescents, and adults can engage with the music of inTime to help stimulate rhythm awareness, focus, timing, and adaptive responses to stress, all of which support optimal functioning and brain health as well as the brain-body connection. inTime provides a personalized program of listening training and fun movement activities using the body, the voice, and drumming to help anyone keep the beat and flow with the rhythms of daily life as they experience greater awareness of how the brain and body work together.

The inTime program

The inTime program supports social and emotional function, auditory processing, communication, executive function, creative expression, motor coordination, stress response, self-awareness, musicality, and more. Progressive rhythm-based training stimulates four frequency zones associated with different brain areas and their related functions during the course of a personalized listening schedule.

I am enthused about inTime adding to my repertoire of interventions. inTime, involving short sessions of listening engaging the body, sets up the brain for higher level processing, clarity of thinking and decision making. For me, I felt more connected and effective in my daily work and life and see its application for all ages. ABT keep on providing interventions that keep up with current brain and therapy research.

To me, inTime is more than a rhythm-based music listening program. I have practiced yoga for 12 years. Yoga teaches its students to find inner quiet or peace, even in a crowded noisy room the goal is to be able to shut out all the noise and distraction and meditate.
