Tune In is an exploration of what can happen when we use music intentionally to better our health.

Tune In is a mix of personal stories, real-life examples, interactive exercises, tips and check-lists all designed for the person who is looking for inspiration and a boost to feeling better.

When we experience the right music, in the right way, transformation can happen - improved wellness, a boost in motivation, overall feelings of happiness, and stronger communities.

Jennifer Buchanan's mission is to inspire you to use music with greater intention so you can live a healthier more satisifed life.

"I've seen the beauty that can arise in the hearts of those that can not be reached by other types of therapy and yet they respond to the magic of music. Jennifer introduced me to the miracles that music therapy can perform. She has through her work touched many people in ways that could only be accomplished with both her special gift and her music - one of the most heart warming experiences in my life." - Don Felder, lead guitarist of the Eagles
