Quite simply, you’re here to remember the built-in power you have to use music skillfully…for any purpose.
No need to be a musician or a composer or a singer. The power you have is available to you and every one of us…as a listener. A consumer of sound and rhythm.
This Quest is about re-discovering the lost art of music, and learning practices that both enhance and carry you far beyond any practices you currently use, whether they are mindfulness, emotional intelligence, meditation, physical exercise, breath, belief system, or mindset.
It’s about consistent, continuous exploration, discovery, and deployment of a part of you that, up until this moment, you’ve probably never considered as a built-in skill.
- You could use music to tell the next part of your story with power, not force.
- You could explore how the music you love connects you more deeply to other people – from those you love and care for (and who care for you) to those who require your professional leadership, attention and cooperation.
- You could use music to empower your essential, perhaps dormant soft skills, to deploy music in service to your “why,” to grow personally, professionally, and as a successful leader.
- You could use music to change your world. For good. If you are a world-changer, not just a bigger better faster disaster ambulance chaser, you now know that the tool you’ve needed is finally within your reach.
If the quest for continued personal improvement typifies who you are then you already understand that your growth is a vital part of much more than personal success. Your commitment to continued growth is reflected in how you influence the world.
If you’re the right kind of person, you may have an inkling that a deeper experience of joy – one vital result of a music care practice – is much more than feeling happy. You may have a sense that choosing joy is connected to something more than emotion, physiology, and choice.
As you read this, you may have begun to sense that using music on purpose touches something more. And, you’d be correct. The lost art of using music on purpose reaches deeply into conscious creation and inspired options. Far beyond automation and machine learning, the intuition of the master inventors, scientists, and mystics is waiting for you – hiding in plain sight right there in the music you love.
Now, for the very first time, you can have access to the convergence of ancient wisdom, tradition, and modern science in a simple, effective, life-transformative musical journey – a journey you will learn to repeat often and use at will. As a Passenger, the Quest will open you to the safe, healthful, challenging, effective, and enjoyable exploration of your individual transformation. It's a process you will want to share and that scales easily to transform your family, your friends, or the worldwide team you lead.
There are some amazing no-cost tools available to you at the Music Care website, including this Free Guide to Authentic Resilience with Music, that you can use right now to turn any tough situation into an opportunity for authentic connection and transformative belonging. Or, if you're ready, you could take passage on a Quest that will change your life forever.
* * * * * * * * * *
Like a ringing bell, this Quest offers you no-go-back tools you can easily learn to apply with skill, confident in the supporting scientific evidence and self-evident results, to fundamentally change the nature of your life journey forever and for good.
If you chose, you could begin the Quest of your lifetime right now...but in all honesty, please know that this heroic journey is never easy, and of the few who choose to attempt it, some may not complete it right away. Our promise to you as a Passenger on this journey, whether or not you chose to take it with us, is that everything can change for good.
Here's the challenge. Ask yourself: do I have the courage to master the heroic journey and accept the invitations I will encounter along my path? How deeply can my music carry me along, into, and through this journey?
What promises have I made to myself that I have yet to keep? How can I tap into joy more deeply, more consistently, more authentically?
Yes: you will find the Quest is difficult, but that it’s also fun, inspiring, and healing.
As you enjoy this experience you will find it resonates far more powerfully than a one-way webinar or an interactive slide deck. You will respond naturally to the power of this active learning, game-inspired self discovery, have the option to interact with your Quest mentor and other Passengers, and build effective, purpose-driven ceremonies for both the most difficult and the most sublimely paradoxical moments of your life. Your challenge is simply to allow and enjoy your ride, and to share your stronger skills with others around you.

There are several distinct levels of personal challenge available to you in the Quest, depending on your preference for more interactive guidance or more self-study: Platinum, Gold, and Silver*.
The Platinum Level Quest is a perfect journey for those who:
· Want to make the deepest possible inner commitment to transformation
· Maximize results from a lifetime of self work
· Strive to move from success to significance in cooperation with mentors, guides, teachers, and other team members
Your customized Platinum Quest is supported with in-depth guidance by Bill Protzmann, additional assistance from our team of Quest Mentors, group interaction with other Passengers as you wish, and regular online meetings during your journey that extend your new skills and integrate them into the challenging opportunities of your life. Team cohorts are also ideal Platinum Passenger opportunities.
As the name implies, the Platinum Quest is of significant value, and it is highly customizable to the demands of your specific situation, whether that is a full embrace of new "5D" consciousness, or as support for initiatives such as social justice, equity, inclusion, and diversity (S-JEDI). Please use this link to inquire.
The Gold level is reserved for Passengers who desire a significant, self-directed journey. This level may appeal to you if your self-motivation and commitment are excellent and you feel confident to reach out to your Quest mentor to explore new ideas or ask questions as necessary. To join the Quest at the Gold level, the tuition is $2,497 USD. Gold level Passengers are invited to join the weekly Quest mastermind.
For active-duty military service members and Veterans of any United Nations member country, as well as first responders, and frontline COVID-19 clinical workers and volunteers, Music Care Inc offers need-based Quest scholarships. Please use this link to inquire, and be prepared to provide bona fide documentation of your military or other qualifying service.
At the Silver level, you are expected to be self-sufficient with your inner work and, although your Quest will include online discussion with other Passengers and dialogue with Quest mentors, your own internal compass will be the tool you use most. The normal Silver level tuition is $997 USD, however we are pleased to offer the Silver level as a pay-it-forward plan of just $149 USD per month. In exchange for easy access to the Quest and its immediate value this is also an incentive to share the value you receive from the Quest with others!

- 10 Levels
- Coaching By Bill
- Community Support
What's a music rite?
You will learn about how music has always been available to us as a tool, and the power of using musical tools in purposeful, almost ceremonial ways. This background will also introduce the language of music care. You will begin to identify the ritual-ready moments of your life.
This second "preparation" Level is about the things you'll need on hand to perform an effective music rite. In this Level, you'll assemble that gear and create a personal space for practicing its use.
Your first of three "build" Levels. Creating effective music rites begins with deepening your internal awareness of and connection to your emotions. You will do that here...as if you were creating a strategic approach to the rest of your life. Here's a secret: you are.
This Level reveals the tools you need to accurately discover the emotions in the music you already love. Think you can do that well now? Just wait until you learn and use this tactical approach to the hidden emotional power of music.
It takes strategy, tactics, and ammunition to win a military campaign. In this level, you will learn how to make your own customized ammo. No worries: this military metaphor isn't about making war; it's about the fuel that powers your music ritual and how to use that fuel for good.
Locked and Loaded
Testing your skills in a safe environment is crucial before deploying them in real life. This is the most most important Level in the Quest: everything you've learned so far comes together in one powerful playlist, and you build your very first musical ritual around it.
The last step before you take your new skills into the wild is to learn to find the powerful place called "neutral." Using your new skills, you will identify your own personal "neutral" and begin to practice ways of returning to it at will. Don't worry: there's a rite for this, too.
Into the Wild
You've had time to practice, but now is the time to deploy your new skills in real life. This Level can be daunting for introverts and hard to control for extroverts, but you're ready. You may be surprised at how far you've grown...and at how many more purposeful rituals await!
The Wild can be brutal. This Level will help you keep your balance out there. You will learn to make several new kinds of music rituals that can take you to back to neutral. Your final practice for the next and final Level.
Your Own Personal Music Rites
In this final Level, you will learn how to extend your new skills across the entire spectrum of your power. Most importantly, as you do this, you will find your trust in music ritual deepens and connects you more genuinely with the other essential parts of your human being.
Emotionally ricochet to a place you choose
"Wow! I have always loved music and have relied on it throughout my life, but I never understood why, or appreciated the logic, methodology, and science behind my reliance on music to carry me through. Understanding the framework of why I feel the way I do, understanding that it is OK and doing so with intent and then being able to emotionally ricochet to a place of my choosing is very comforting. THANK YOU!"
This was an AMAZING journey
"Thank you, Bill, for inviting me to go on this Quest and for your encouragement throughout. And thank ALL of you who put this very thoughtful and carefully orchestrated Quest together. I can heartily recommend it. Coming from a very spiritual background, the Quest helped me unlock a key to two paths which I had to date not fully grasped, and which have opened through the Quest and helped me further rise. As with everything in life, synchronicity is the magic ingredient when life unfolds."
Don't deny emotion; incorporate it
"I have sincerely appreciated this very directed, unique, meaningful, and effective way for us humans to process and understand emotion. It's a skill, and this Quest shows us how to use it. The times in which we live demand that we learn to incorporate emotion into our daily life experiences instead of denying it altogether, and the Quest shows us exactly how to do this in a way that is compellingly easy to appreciate because music is the means."
This Quest has truly improved my life!
"When my Dad passed away, I was faced with overwhelming grief for the first time in my life. I decided to use the skills from this Quest to learn to process my grief using music as my guide and lifeline. It has worked so well! I now feel empowered to face this difficult emotion. I now know how to gently recognize, approach, and enter times of grief and to use my curated playlist to safely and effectively take that journey."
Worldwide authority on addiction and recovery
"Listening to Bill Protzmann pulls all of the positive things about living into place. He is a master at his ability to relate his music to recovery for everyone. His music and his words of wisdom touch and teach at the same time that recovery is truly a gift, just like his music."
Cancer survivor, Military Veteran, peer counselor
"I confronted my fear of cancer treatment radiation; initially with the Serenity Prayer and meditation. Then it dawned on me: I am seeking serenity. Bill gave me his 'Serenity' CD. The radiation techs played it for me. While the beams radiated, the piano sedated. The power of music! I left Protzmann’s CD for future patients."
Director (retired) VA Medical Center San Diego CA
"Bill’s love of music, passion for Veterans and boundless energy to do the right thing in every situation is to be admired. I heartily endorse him and his work."
CEO (retired) Episcopal Community Services of CA
"Many thanks for your lively and thoughtful keynote address this morning at our Professional Growth Day. You were at once entertaining, inspiring, and thought-provoking. I confess I could sit and listen to you play the piano for hours, and so appreciate you sharing your gifts with us today."
US Army National Guard (ret), Sr HR NCO 1-109th FA
"Bill is an amazing presenter. His speaking and training abilities are outmatched only by his passion for music and helping Veterans. I’m not sure why I like what he does, but his use of music for healing touches me on some deep level that I normally don’t allow to surface."
Asset Protection Attorney
"If you’re looking for a speaker at your next event, I cannot recommend Bill highly enough. As he describes himself, he is a man on a mission, namely, to raise awareness of the power of music as self care. Your audience will be engaged, entertained, and enlightened."
