The full brain workout

A Value Beyond Money

Season 2/ Episode 7

Rachel Francine/ Co-Founder and CEO, SingFit
Andy Tubman/ Co-Founder and Chief of Therapeutics and Music, SingFit

If there is one that I have learned doing this podcast for the past two years, it’s that music contains value beyond the cost of a CD, an iTunes download or a Pandora stream.

This show proves that music has a value beyond money.

Rachel Francine and Andy Tubman are a brother and sister pair of entrepreneurs who have taken the best from each of their careers and combined them into a new company with a mission.

Regular singing consistently produces results due to autonomic physiological reactions that take place when we sing.

Andy Spent years working as a music therapist, teaching patients with brain trauma or dementia how music can retrain the brain and teach these patients how to speak again.

Rachel spent years working in the music industry and learning the ins and outs of music publishing and copyright.

A few years back the two realized that both of those parts make the perfect whole. Andy, with a background in music therapy, and Rachel with a background in music publishing. They formed, SingFit, a company with the goal of bringing music therapy to the largest audience possible.

It’s an interview that meanders from music cues for forgetful opera divas, Gabby Giffords love of Willie Nelson, and finally ends up on BlueBerry Hill.
