Tune In: Why Music Improves Mood, Memory & Motivation

As the world becomes more complex, society continues to seek new ways to feel more connected. In so many ways music provides the opportunity to build that bridge. At the simplest level music brings more meaning into moments. And, at a more complex level music impacts brain function and human behavior reducing stress, pain, and symptoms of depression as well as improving mood, memory, and motivation.

Since beginning her career three decades ago, Jennifer Buchanan, an award-winning Music Therapist and Author has witnessed the power of these music connections with infants through to seniors, from the corporate boardroom to the palliative care unit, from the classroom to correction center, and for people struggling with their mental health to those living with dementia. The results are nothing short of inspiring.

Using clinical evidence and compelling stories of how music affects people's lives, this complimentary webinar will help you tune in to all the ways music can be used more intentionally; to boost mood and restore feelings of wellbeing at home, work and in life.

In this engaging and eye-opening session, you will:

  • Explore new research that amplifies the work happening at the intersection of music, health, and neuroscience
  • Hear real stories that demonstrate how music - when used with intention - can reduce stress and anxiety while igniting creativity required for new ideas and problem-solving
  • Identify how music is a communication bridge, one that can help individuals express and process their most significant life challenges, difficult transitions, and at times, an unexpected health crisis

Based on her book of the same title, Tune In will demonstrate that when we experience the right music, in the right way, transformation can and does happen...one simple, yet powerful, note at a time.
