The Science Behind Our Impact

Schools often channel resources into programs that lack a solid foundation of research. Our approach integrates scientifically proven principles from musicology and cognitive-behavioral applied psychology, all aimed at enhancing well-being through two mechanisms of change:

  1. Arts-based cognitive and emotional processing
  2. Psychological flexibility

On this page, you will find summaries of our own extensive evaluations, including pre- and post-data points sourced from hundreds of Sonic Connections participants.

Below, you can also explore a selection of the foundational literature that supports the evidence-based concepts and methodologies central to our program design.
