Event description

Description

In this interactive workshop participants will learn about:

  • The neuroscience of music
  • The benefits of music in therapy for a broad range of ages and populations, with a particular focus on trauma
  • Appropriate ways of using music interventions, and understanding how music can become a trigger
  • The use of movement for moving through restriction or immobilization
  • And learn from audio and video excerpts of music therapy and trauma work

Participants will get a hands-on experience playing various instruments individually and in a group, using their voices, and moving to music. No previous music experience is required! This workshop will provide you with a variety of new tools and techniques to help clients move from a state of immobilization to empowerment in a non-intrusive manner.
