|Event:||FS-02 Music Fundamentals Make Music Therapy Effective|
|Time:||1:30 to 3:00|
|Presenter:||Douglas Johnson, Professor of Music, Trinty College|
|Are there properties native to music itself that empower music experiences in a music-therapeutic partnership? Established in 1945 as a profession in the US, music therapy today encompasses work and persons of all ages, at every stage of life. Within an individualized treatment plan, musical choices continuously inform music therapy interventions. These choices are based on observing pulse and breath, and the effects of rhythms, tones, tempo, dynamics range, timbre, form, sounds and silence. This course offers students ways to experience fundamental aspects of music, the basis of its healing potential.|
