A true story about how music changes lives.
139 Reviews on Show-Score

What can you fix in just 20 seconds? It’s not enough time to heal an ailing mother. It’s not enough time to undo the damage caused by an alcoholic, schizophrenic father. But if you can hear the music, 20 seconds can provide the score to a path of love, empathy, and forgiveness.

When 8-year-old Tom Sweitzer first sat down at a piano next to a benevolent Sunday school teacher, he experienced the effects of music therapy long before knowing such a treatment existed. Now, as a performer and music therapist, he brings a research-based approach to helping others find the power in melody. In 20 Seconds, Tom shares his inspiring true story, infused with colorful characters and original songs, reminding us that music is a universal language worth celebrating.
