Music And The Mind: Training In Childhood Is Meaningful
Where words fail, music speaks.
– Hans Christian Anderson
Life Lessons: It Matters To Start Music Young
Kory Livingstone lives just outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He’s a career musician who has just published his first book Quiet Determination, Unlocking The Gates to Unlimited Success. In Quiet Determination, he talks about the real value of a music education for all children. Concerned parents will be glad to know that Kory has scientific proof that music really does make you smarter. Join us for his personal insights on structure, music, and timing.
How He Found Himself
In the first place, Kory Livingstone was born and raised in Toronto. He combines a lifelong career with music as a pianist/composer and songwriter, with his love of being a business entrepreneur.
In addition, as a Toronto-born pianist, Kory started his professional career playing the piano bar circuit in the local hotels. Taking the advice of Ray Carrol, an original member of the famous Platters, Kory next developed his talents as a singer and songwriter.
Kory and Music Today
As a Keynote Artist Kory combines his keynote speaking with original music that he performs on stage to underscore the theme of his talks. He was the founder and director of the Toronto High School of the Performing Arts, whose students included Cree Summer Franks, Keanu Reeves, and Brooke Johnston.
A graduate of Wilfred Laurier University, Kory counts becoming a published author as his most recent achievement. When Kory’s not coaching clients on lifestyle balance, entrepreneurship, or keynote speaking, he’s out peddling around the countryside on his road bike, playing ice hockey, working out in his home gym, or practicing Tai Chi in his garden. Music also brings mind and body together.
Music, Practice And Learn – Benefits For A Lifetime
Kory’s on a mission. He’s released 6 albums on his own independent record label, Crestant Records. His CD entitled You Were In My Eyes is a collection of 8 original songs that tell stories about our everyday life experiences, the many faces of love; inspirational themes & the power of words. They Say It’s Wonderful is Kory’s response to popular demand from his fans. It contains vocal Jazz standards with original songs and instrumentals written by Kory.
It’s important to note that his self-titled CD Kory Livingstone is Kory’s first CD. It contains a wide variety of instrumental tunes that Kory composed for solo piano up to full symphonic orchestra, from Gospel to Jazz & Reggae.

Next CoreBrain Journal Guest
090 Edward (Teddy) Teece. Oakland, California – He developed disordered eating in conjunction with substance abuse in order to keep his weight low enough to be eligible to row at Yale on the lightweight team. Even after he quit the team, he remained chemically dependent on amphetamines & opioids to function and continued to focus on his body as the only vessel of his identity. He eventually left school and ultimately found his way into wilderness therapy; this program saved his life and allowed him to (re)connect with his humanity and the natural world. His Special Note for this CBJ/090 Episode: “Eventually, I went back to school and wrote about my experiences and the experiences of half a dozen other student athletes who had struggled. It was remarkably easy to find troubled athletes for interview subjects, and I now understand that there is a broad-based problem with our collegiate athletic system.” Tune in for Teddy. This dimension of college success isn’t pretty.

- Interesting, Important and helpfulApril 28, 2018 by J.M.I from Sweden
I am listening in from Sweden, and I learn so much from Dr Parker and his interesting guests. Sadly, information like this is hard to find amongst practitioners here, and underlying factors to symptoms are of little interest. I am thankful to Dr Parker dedicating time in spreading word about helping people with psycological dysfunctions from a non conventional angle. Thank you!
- Core Brain Journal--NeuropsychologyMay 25, 2017 by Dr Terry James Gingras from United States
Just finished session 118 with neuropsychologist, Dr. Braun. Excellent content presented in a relaxed style. I'm a neuropsychoogist with a specialization In ADHD so I appreciate both Dr. Parker's and Dr. Braun's efforts demystifying the practice of neuropsychology.
- Exceptional interviews !!May 16, 2017 by MCVGRL from United States
Core Brain Journal, with Dr. Charles Parker is a must listen for a wide audience. If you are either the individual, suffering from complex personal medical/ psychological issues; or a family member, friend... please tune in often.
- Podcast 107 (Brain Health) - Very informative!April 13, 2017 by ad1978mke from United States
I especially liked this Podcast because it provided a wealth of valuable brain health research and tips in an approachable, easy-to-listen-to format. The rapport between the Guest Speaker (Dr. Braun) and Host (Dr. Parker) was evident, and I hope to hear another Podcast with this Guest Speaker!
- Top quality informationFebruary 5, 2017 by MD Ireland from Ireland
As a functional medicine doc I found this iterview stimulating, inspiring and it is full of clinically useful information
- FascinatingFebruary 1, 2017 by jinki1 from United States
If you love science and psychology, then this is for you. The brain is such a mysterious machine, and listening to experts discuss how it works is fascinating. This seems like a pick-and-choose type podcast: I'll skip the shows focusing on estrogen and alzeimer's and go for creativity, anxiety, music, and others. But what I've listened to so far is great.
- My Brain Thanks You!January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States
Thanks for shedding some much needed light on issues of the brain. I recently became interested in the subject when I was listening to NPR do a segment on neuroplasticity. I could never remember the name of the author, but it helped me find this great podcast!
- Flipping Junkie ReviewDecember 23, 2016 by Danny Johnson -Flipping Junkie from United States
Awesome podcast! I really loved the bipolar episode. Wonderful insight into these issues. Keep up the good work!
- “How I Found Myself” Dean RobertsDecember 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States
I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!
