Significant evidence has shown that certain types of music can help us attain a state of relaxed alertness, known as the 'alpha state', which is beneficial to effective study. Whilst in the alpha state, a person is able to learn in a stress-free, high-energy environment. When classical music of around 60 beats per minute is arranged and performed on a synthesiser, the results are even more astounding.

Roland Roberts has arranged two hours of particularly effective Baroque music and two hours of Mozart's most passive pieces specifically for the purpose of accelerating your learning. These specially arranged recordings will help to accelerate the pace of learning effortlessly

120 minute two-CD set.

  1. In this CD, Roland Roberts has excelled himself. The alpha wave pattern induced by the arrangement of Baroque music at around 60 beats per minute engages the mind in an alert and relaxed state. It provides superb background music either for studying or engaging in any type of activity that requires focused attention. It benefits everyone who is within earshot of its calming reverberation.
