Experience the medicinal power of music through the National Music Centre's new drop-in music therapy sessions in collaboration with JB Music Therapy.
Drumming in a circle form is one of the many techniques used by Music Therapists. Rhythm through drumming is known to accelerate physical healing, boost the immune system and produce feelings of well-being – not to mention create feelings of connection between all participants. Each FunDrum session will introduce different techniques and offer a fresh perspective on drumming and wellness. Participants will drum, sing songs, explore new instruments, and discuss the impact that music has on daily life. Instruments are provided or participants can bring their own.
Led by JB Music Therapy’s Certified Music Therapists, FunDrum is open to all but ideal for those navigating life transitions, such as Calgary seniors interested in improving their memory and mood.
Participants can drop in for a single class, or come back week after week to enjoy the benefits of therapeutic singing and/or drumming, while also expanding on the skills explored in previous weeks.
