Good Vibrations: Music as Therapy

About

To heal with music is human nature.

A mother instinctively soothes her baby with a lullaby. We subconsciously soundtrack life moments. It’s there to celebrate, and there to commiserate.

Music is inside all of us and it’s far more powerful than most of us give it credit for.

The didgeridoo is one of the oldest forms of music therapy in human existence, yet Australia’s First Nations people weren’t the only ancient culture to harness the power of musical healing. Native Americans used wind instruments, Tibetan Monks used bowls for sound healing, the Aztecs, the Incas, Ancient Greeks…the list goes on.

And yet, in modern medicine, music is largely absent despite decades of powerful research proving its efficacy.

Music therapists become a growing industry. AI technology is creating new ways for music to integrate into modern healthcare and innovative music artists are experimenting with music's unquestionably real healing powers.

And this is just the start. Does music hold the power to enhance the effectiveness of virtually any treatment or therapy?

Join our esteemed speakers as we explore music’s magical power to heal from 3 unique perspectives:
1. Ancient practices
2. Modern music therapy.
3. AI-powered interventions.

WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU IN 2024
