For some people, music is a way of escaping the noise in life. It provides them an alternative reality where they can grieve, be happy and think on a whole new level. Music provides relief and allows you to lower your stress levels, which enhances your productivity in daily life. According to Kendrick Tilghman it’s an intense therapy that results in not just better mental health and brightened moods, but can also be used as a tool in STEM education.
Kendrick Tilghman is the CEO of 5 Starr Enterprise, based in Baltimore. He is an Engineer and MBA degree holder, devoted husband to Carole Tilghman, and a professional DJ.
