Experience the medicinal power of music through the National Music Centre's new drop-in music therapy sessions in collaboration with JB Music Therapy.
Singing improves breathing, develops core muscles, exercises the brain (memory, concentration, linking left and right brain function), engages the emotions and encourages a feeling of belonging. Singers report benefits in all these areas, but even more, they report a huge improvement in their overall mood. Through the HealthSong stream, participants won’t just sing, they’ll also personalize their songbooks, analyze the lyrics they love (and don’t love), create exceptional playlists, and find the music that will keep them feeling connected.
Led by JB Music Therapy’s Certified Music Therapists, HealthSong 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.
