Harnessing the Power of Music

Music is a valuable therapeutic tool. The reasons are sometimes obvious, but the ways our bodies and brains respond to music is complex. Join us for this free talk, celebrating Music Therapy Awareness Month where you can expect to learn about the surprising ways we interact with music. This talk will cover some of the tools and interventions used by music therapists in some of the places were they work, and will show you some of the ways you can use music as a therapeutic tool in your own life.
