Event description

Description

Music is a life-giving, spiritual force that can affect players and listeners alike. Music can provide us with the opportunity to reflect and better understand our lives. As a therapeutic medium music has proven its effectiveness both as a humanistic expression of the soul, and as a specific medical intervention. This conference will aim to draw together artists and therapists whose common aim is to promote music and health.
