Sounds for the Soul

Min-Jung Kym


Music can be a powerful therapeutic tool and it has been shown to bring about positive emotional changes and reduce anxiety. For cancer patients, music and music therapy can also be used to develop positive coping skills that come with a cancer diagnosis. This album is a personal selection of works that pianist Min-Jung Kym played or listened to during her treatment. 

There is a book to accompany this album entitled "La musique pour dépasser le cancer" published by Éditions Hermann. 





“The power of music and what it can inspire helped me through this period of my life. I wanted to share my experience because music contains the altruistic dimension of sharing, and perhaps, as a result, others may also find it easier to cope with their cancer.”

—   Min-Jung Kym
