Narrative Medicine and Music Therapy

This 5-week series led by Nathan J Miller, MA, LCAT, MT-BC & Michelle Loy, MD will introduce music therapy, a health profession designed to help people develop tools to manage an array of symptoms such as anxiety, fatigue, pain, and insomnia. More specifically, we’ll take a look at a community approach to music therapy and learn how singing together can contribute to enhanced health and wellbeing.

Through music-based techniques, such as group singing, individuals are invited to explore how music can be applied in purposeful ways to connect with inner resources and community.

Together, we will engage in breath work, vocal exercises, choral warm-ups, stretching, and learn more about the process of singing together in a group. We will also learn how to read and understand professional-level choral pieces.

You do not need to have any previous music training to participate. All materials, music, etc. will be provided to participants.

Participants are invited to join even if they may not be able to attend all 5 weeks.

Dates: 10/18, 11/15, 11/29, 12/13, 12/27
