M4L Value

Music4Life® employees and partners strive to be authentic truth-tellers who are: innovative, responsive, caring, music-therapy minded professionals focused on delivering value to our customers.


Music4Life® [M4L] scales progressive music therapy-informed programs and products to four online platforms featuring the clinical evidence-based Music Medicine Protocol to accomplish individualized goals. M4L’s core competency was developed by licensed certified music therapist Judith Pinkerton, who is revolutionizing the field of music-based mo management to meet all sectors influenced with music – the universal language.

  • Consumers relieve stress and other unsettled moods through Music Medicine Pills®. When music is applied prescriptively, 94% reported in a study (n=603) of residential addiction treatment patients that EQ-Emotional Intelligence was improved after listening to one thirty-minute Music Medicine Pill. Another study using a twenty-three minute Music Medicine Pill resulted in reduced stress for 87% of cases. And a case study with a veteran with PTSD resulted in physician-directed cessation of pain, anxiety and depression medications.
  • The Music Medicine Academy and Music Medicine Club educate and empower consumers with DIY ecourses, certification trainings, ebooks, specialized playlists, live stream events, and blogs.
  • The patented Key2MEE® mobile music APP supports users with an Emotional Profile QUIZ and results with recommended DIY programs to support mood management. In the next phase of APP development, users will be able to generate their own Music Medicine Pills (2024). When determined that the user is stuck in the Chronic Unsettled Comfort Zone, the user will be directed to tutorials and Music Telemedicine for personal support.
  • Services and Tools are accessible through TheMusic4Life.com: Music Medicine Club, Music Medicine Academy, Music Telemedicine, and Key2MEE.


Music4Life® “M4L” was founded by Judith Pinkerton, a licensed (2011), board-certified music therapist (2002), dba SeminarConcerts International in 1991. M4L has become the cornerstone company escalating delivery of deep, transformational relief from stress, anxiety and other unsettled moods through its revolutionary therapeutic programs. Developed over several decades, Judith has worked with people from cradle to grave, delivering her proprietary platform that adds a third part to the traditional two-part music therapy platform.

Judith’s Alaskan hospital experience in 1986 birthed her solo violin recording “MEE in the Key of Peace” (1988). Then she relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada and founded the non profit Center for Creative Therapeutic Arts and organized a healthcare team to support her production of the first Music Medicine Pill, “MEE Concert” (1991). Simultaneously, Judith authored the accredited training program “Music: Can it Stop Pain?” (Nevada State Board of Nursing, 1990) which evolved into the “Music Medicine Boot Camp” (2014).  She wrote her first book “Music: The Stress-Release System in 3 Steps” (1993) then realized that a customized Music Medicine Pill was warranted in 1994 when a client revealed sexual trauma. In 2001 after the 9-11 event, Judith was deeply moved to do more for people hurting and created Music4Life as her trademarked brand.  Since then, thousands of people include more than 11,000 patients in addiction treatment who have benefited from M4L’s expanded books, radio show podcasts (2011-2017), continuing education events, playlists, training programs and Music Medicine Pill recordings.

“I lost my twins and dived into the many feelings of grieving. I found the Music4Life Music Medicine protocol so helpful. I had the confidence to plunge into intense feelings through matching them with the right music in a mood sequence formula, knowing that I would heal faster.” 

Judith Pinkerton

In 1991, 1994 and 2000, Judith investigated the effects of the MEE Concert recording which yielded positive results with reduced unsettledness and trait anxiety for audience participants, cancer patients and university subjects.  Access the ebook “Brace for Impact: A Case for Emotional Fluidity” (2019) to read the studies.

During 2017-2024, M4L evolved branding and scaled all programs and products for mass consumption launching four online platforms to access club subscriptions, certification trainings, telehealth, and digital products. Consumers are empowered to self-regulate moods by accessing their music files another way for portability and ease in any situation to significantly reduce unsettledness (i.e. stress, anxiety, anger, depression, grief). Accessing the vastly under-utilized resource of music, M4L DIY programs and products support a broad sector of people (diverse work settings, problems, generations and preferred music) who have reduced or eliminated the need for certain medications – prescriptive or self-medicated with alcohol, and are being more productive, energized, happier, and peaceful.

The lead company is Music 4 Life Technology, Inc. “M4Lt,” the exclusive distributor of Music 4 Life, Inc.’s intellectual property (owned by Judith Pinkerton).  M4Lt’s patented Key2MEE is the mobile music application supporting users’ ability to manage moods effectively with assessment, tutorials, supportive trainings, and DIY products (and soon the ability to creative your own prescriptive playlist).
