Participant Notes

Bring some paper and pencils!


It is likely no surprise that music has powerful qualities which allow us to feel heard, to allow us to express emotions that words cannot, and to celebrate important milestones in our lives. Many of us use music each day be it passively while we study or work, for enjoyment with friends or a solo dance party, or for therapeutic uses. Beyond these personal uses of music, this experiential workshop aims to provide you with an overview of the field of Music Therapy as well as the distinction and connections with therapeutic uses of music outside of the therapy space. This presentation will allow you to gain insight into the benefits and application of Music Therapy including demonstrations and opportunities to trial various techniques and interventions, and will provide you with tangible tools and strategies to use in your everyday life to promote and maintain wellness.

***No musical experience or understanding is required to engage in or benefit from this workshop!***
