In 1985, Terry left the music business after he saw his “Heartbeat Lullabies” recording calm infants and children recovering from open heart surgery in The University of Alabama Hospital, Birmingham, Cardiac Intensive Care Unit and heard the following nurse’s testimonies. Watch actual footage of testimonies here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uznenu6yKM&feature=youtu.beIt was a life changing and career experience for him to see the power of music used in such a positive way. Since that time, his simple but sophisticated arrangements of traditional nursery songs with a human heartbeat rhythm have been played in thousands of hospitals, special care facilities and treatment centers to calm anxious, frightened, infants, children, adults and even dogs.

“I have always felt pressured to provide rational explanations of why I think the Heartbeat Lullabies calm so much better than any other music recordings. Even though I think my reasoning has been sound and backed by recent research, the music has, for many, evoked a peace that passes all understanding.
Albert Einstein said. “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. When the solution is simple, God is answering.” Through the years, I have seen and heard enough to know that the miraculous calming effect of these simple recordings is a gift from God and not of my own doing.
Every day I feel called to make more people aware of their efficacy, not only for infants and children, but for adults and dogs. I continue to give free copies of the recordings to professionals who work in settings, where playing them, can benefit the most listeners. My hope has always been, that after care providers see it work, they will help spread the word about how well the therapeutic music distracts and quickly comforts. In the future, you may not remember the name of the company, my name, or the name of the recordings, but you will never forget the distinctive sound of the Heartbeat Lullabies and how fast they work. There have been many creative, talented and dedicated people who have worked at Audio-Therapy Innovations in the past. With their combined efforts we have managed to help change more lives than we know. I particularly want to thank Erma Snyder, Marilyn Eason Lawson, Shirley Hand Colvard, and Keeley Sandoval.”
